As a bookkeeper you keep track of all incoming & outgoing $$$. Thanks the most basic answer, but it depends on the type of business. You are also usually responsible for creating comprehensive financial reports to let the "higher ups" know where the money is being used. It helps them decide where to make cut backs if needed, and lets them know what their bottom line is.

In my company, the accountant also deals with various documents that we subsequently send to clients, and I noticed that instead of working on important tasks, he spends time constantly creating the same document. I decided to use the software from Pandadoc on this site and immediately paid for a subscription to use the software without any restrictions.
