Job Outlook

Employment of bookkeeping, accounting, and auditing clerks is projected to decline 6 percent from 2019 to 2029.

Technological change is expected to reduce demand for these workers. Software innovations, such as cloud computing, have automated many of the tasks performed by bookkeepers. As a result, the same amount of bookkeeping work can be done with fewer employees, which is expected to lead to job losses for bookkeepers over the next 10 years.

With more automation of routine tasks, bookkeepers are expected to take on a more analytical and advisory role over the decade. For example, rather than entering data by hand, bookkeepers will focus on analyzing their clients’ books and pointing out potential areas for efficiency gains
