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.
