Accounts Receivable Test Prep – Practice Tests

An accounts receivable clerk is responsible for tracking all payments that are made to/by a company. This clerk ensures that the payments and transactions made for goods and services are properly recorded. The duties and responsibilities of this position often include interaction with clients regarding past and due bills, ensuring that payments are posted accurately, updating files, and verifying data.

When an accounts receivable clerk is part of a large accounting staff, his or her responsibilities are limited. Therefore, the educational requirements may only be a high school diploma or GED. However, if it is a small accounting staff, the accounts receivable clerk may have more responsibilities, and the educational requirement may be an associate degree (in accounting or finance).
