The role of a full charge bookkeeper in a small business is more complex than that of a regular bookkeeper and carries more responsibility. A full charge bookkeeper handles all of the accounting needs of a company, including the preparation of financial statements. The role is most often found in small to midsize companies that don't need an accountant or controller. A full charge bookkeeper reports directly to the owner of the company or the highest level of management and often works with an outside CPA firm to prepare financial statements and tax returns at the end of the year.
In a smaller company, the full charge bookkeeper might work alone to process all the company's basic bookkeeping and financial reporting, but in a mid-size firm, bookkeeping clerks or administrative assistants may help with basic tasks. These could include data entry of accounts payable invoices and preparing bank deposits. The full charge bookkeeper will supervise these employees, helping to organize work flow and verifying accuracy of work. Some full charge bookkeepers in small companies wear many hats, working or supervising in areas such as purchasing, inventory and human resources.
