What is Senior Bookkeeping?

Being a senior bookkeeper comes with a great deal of responsibilities. Bookkeepers are an integral part of running a business day to day. This includes:

  • Recording ingoing and outgoing transactions 
  • Daily banking activities
  • Payment processing 
  • Financial reporting

Senior bookkeeping is one of South Africa’s scarce skills. This means that it is in demand and not many people have this qualification. 

With a scarce skill, it’ll be easier to find employment anywhere in the country and even the world. Bookkeeping is something that can be done anywhere.
