The job of a bookkeeper is exactly what the name says; they are the keepers of the company’s books. They make sure that all financial transactions are entered into a record keeping system. Bookkeepers do not manipulate or analyze the results; that is the job of the accountant.
We’ve come a long way from the day when journals were entered by hand and added or subtracted manually. Today comprehensive software packages are powerful tools for financial data entry. Bookkeeping for everything from small businesses to large corporations can be a very time consuming. ATS specializes in providing these services to small and medium sized businesses that would not normally retain a full time accounting clerk.
