Accounts Receivable Clerks are primarily tasked to provide financial, clerical and administrative services to ensure efficient, timely and accurate payment of accounts under their control. They ensure the company receives payments for goods and services and properly records relevant transactions.
Accounts Receivable Clerks maintain an up-to-date billing system and carry out billing, collection and reporting activities according to set deadlines. They monitor customer accounts for non-payments, delayed payments and other irregularities and resolve discrepancies.
Knowledge of accounts receivable, general bookkeeping and accounting principles are vital to the efficient functioning of Accounts Receivable Clerks. They must also possess a high level of attention to detail and accuracy, organisational skills, analysis and problem-solving skills and proficiency in relevant computer software use, among other things.
