Accounting Clerk Job Description

An accounting clerk is an entry-level worker whose main responsibility is to enter numerical data into computer accounting systems.

An accounting clerk will typically be responsible for maintaining the integrity of accounting records and making sure that all transactions are accurately recorded in the accounting system.

Accounting clerks are sometimes involved in balancing and summarizing accounting records, preparing cost records and financial reports, and sorting and coding incoming invoices.

Accounting clerks often work under a supervisor, but may also work alone while entering accounting records.

Most accounting clerks work in an office environment and are on their feet most of the day.
