These tasks might include some of the following: (1) making sure that all deposits and payments have been reported correctly (2) billing clients for work that has been completed, (3) allocating funds according to project budgets, (4) remitting payments when they are due, (5) making deposits into the company’s banking institution, (6) organizing employees’ receipts, expenses, and travel vouchers, and (7) purchasing inventory and maintaining an adequate supply of needed items.
