  • Accounting Assistants -- Accounting assistants usually work within accounting firms or corporate accounting departments. Duties often include balancing accounts, processing office posts, and processing receipts, sales invoices and payments. They may also maintain financial records and complete VAT (value-added tax) return forms, all under the supervision for a degreed accountant or CPA.
  • Accounting Clerks -- Entry-level accounting clerks generally provide clerical and accounting support for accounting departments. They maintain accurate records and files, process and mail invoices and payments, type reports, and key data into a general ledger or computer system. Flexibility and a willingness to perform a variety of support tasks are essential to success in this position.
  • Bookkeepers -- Bookkeepers often work for small- to medium-sized companies that don't require the services of full-time accountants. Their duties vary, but often include entering daily financial transactions, often via computer. They maintain general ledgers, recording the status of various accounts and making sure that all the accounts balance. They also prepare financial statements and may sometimes perform audits to make sure the computer records are accurate.
