As a bookkeeper one can expect to work in close proximity with a business or company in order to ensure that the most economically viable and safe decisions are made in order to keep finances tight and under control. A bookkeeper should have vast knowledge of QuickBooks, or a similar a computer accounting program, in order to track and record the financial transactions and records of a company. Strong MS-Excel skills are also a must in most companies. Part of the bookkeeping process also includes calculating, recording, and balancing financial reports, including payroll. Therefore, a bookkeeper will need to maintain a healthy relationship with employees in order to communicate and work out changes in salaries, changes to benefits, and other changes to an employee’s pay. A bookkeeper will also work closely with managers or business owners to help ensure that smart decisions are made when selling company assets or evaluating said company’s total revenue, profits, losses, and financial position. In order to communicate the aforementioned information fully and thoroughly bookkeepers will also be responsible for creating many reports, usually these reports will be generated once a month, semiannually, or annually. Other responsibilities that a bookkeeper may have include creating reports for information pertaining to retirement and payroll, entering changes to employee payroll records (often through Quickbooks), and handling voluntary and involuntary deductions. Usually, a bookkeeper will also be in charge of paying the many expenses a business incurs. These expenses usually include things like electricity, internet, office supplies, credit card bills, phone bills, and whatever other expenses a business may incur through its operations.
