Bookkeeping clerks (better known as "bookkeepers") produce, update and maintain financial records for companies and organizations. They work with expenditures, cash flow, profit and loss and other types of financial activities. Bookkeepers utilize special software and spreadsheets to perform record keeping procedures. Bookkeepers typically work in accounting departments. Large companies typically employ clerks that specialize in a specific area such as accounts receivable, accounts payable and auditing. Due to the capabilities of computers, bookkeepers sometimes handle additional tasks such as making phone calls to clients, making purchases and writing letters.

Small companies typically have one general bookkeeper who handles all of the general ledgers. The general ledger is the primary accounting record for companies that utilize double-entry bookkeeping. It includes accounts for various items such as fixed and current assets, revenues and expenses, liabilities as well as gains and losses. A general bookkeeper records all financial transactions, prepares financial statements and posts debits and credits. They also produce summaries and reports for managers. General bookkeepers often produce tax reports, prepare payrolls and invoice statements.

Bookkeepers are given the task of balancing the books. When the procedure is completed, the bookkeeper and management are provided with an understanding of the money spent/money received. They also learn their profit status and the money they owe and is owed to them.
