A debtor’s clerk will also carry out any routine bookkeeping duty so as to submit records of any overdue account at each month end to the board of directors or financial department within the company. Their duties will also entail calculating the interest on all overdue accounts.
The satisfying aspects of a debtor’s clerk is having the ability to recover outstanding money from non-paying defaulters or clients who otherwise would have been written off as a bad debt, therefore saving his company a lot of legal fees.
A debtor’s clerk must have a very outgoing personality and must relate well with different people. He or she must be level-headed and keep their calm while working in a very stressful environment. They will have to keep a firm head when a client does not want to pay their debt. A clerk must have a keen interest in bookkeeping and enjoy doing calculations because most of their working day will be spent doing just that.
