Bookkeepers carry out similar tasks and retain the same responsibilities as an accountant or accounts assistant. In smaller organisations, bookkeepers are responsible for the whole finance function and play an important part in the day to day running of a business.
Bookkeepers often work alone and sometimes provide outsourced services for small companies, providing full financial accounting support for a portfolio of small clients. For some people, bookkeeping offers the opportunity to work from home in a rewarding profession.
Typical duties include:
