How to Become a Virtual Bookkeeper

To become a virtual bookkeeper, you must meet the qualifications for a regular bookkeeping job in addition to having a computer and a reliable internet connection. These requirements include a high school diploma, math skills, and computer skills. After gaining some experience in the field, you can choose to earn certification through the American Institute of Professional Bookkeepers, and your license through the National Association of Certified Public Bookkeepers. While not required, an associate’s degree in bookkeeping, accounting, or business can help you learn additional skills and push your career to the next level.

What is the ZipRecruiter Compensation Estimate?

To help candidates find their perfect job at their desired pay rate, ZipRecruiter estimates the compensation range for job listings where the employer does not state a pay range.

ZipRecruiter Compensation Estimates are not verified by the employer posting the job, and the actual compensation range for an advertised position may vary, perhaps considerably, from the estimated range.

*ZipEstimates are provided by ZipRecruiter, not by the employer.
