All money spent or received by an organization must be accurately recorded. Accounting clerks are an organization’s financial record keeper. They compute, classify, record, and verify numerical data in order to develop and maintain financial records. In smaller businesses, accounting clerks handle all aspects of financial transactions. In larger offices and in an accounting department, they are more specialized. Their title may reflect the type of accounting they do, such as accounts payable clerk or accounts receivable clerk. As organizations computerize their financial records, more accounting clerks are using specialized accounting software.
