The EASIEST Ways To Earn Extra Cash Online...

Wondering where to find online bookkeeping and accounting jobs? Here are 8 legitimate companies that offer you the opportunity you to work from home.

Legitimate Online Jobs For Accountants and Bookkeepers

1. Accounting Principals

Firstly, you may want to begin with Accounting Principals.  This company matches accountants to a variety of jobs including accounts payable, accounts receivable, bookkeeper, credit and collections specialist, payroll specialist, staff accountant, cost accountant, and financial analyst.  Upload your resume and they will help find a good fit for you.

2. Bateman & Co.

Another option is Bateman & Co. They offer part-time and full-time work from home positions. This can be a helpful resource for accountants. However, it is important to note the job opportunities on this site are only open to residents of Texas.


Established in 2008, BIDaWIZ is managed by professionals in the tax and accounting fields. Their work at home opportunities are specifically targeted toward individuals in the tax and accounting professions. If that fits your background, consider this as an opportunity for you.

4. Bookminders

If you are in sales or accounting and are looking for a home-based job, utilize Bookminders for both part-time and full-time opportunities. To work for them, you must have at least two years of experience in bookkeeping. You will have an added advantage if you also have an AA degree. In addition, some of their jobs offer benefits!  This is a rare perk for remote workers.

5. ClickAccounts Bookkeeping Services

ClickAccounts offers a variety of services to their clients including the collection of data, workflow, and other relevant documents. In order to be hired as a work from home accountant or bookkeeper, applicants must be transparent, accurate, and timely, as this is their reputation among their clients.

6. Click N Work

Click N Work offers varied accounting services to its clients. Typically, their services involve the creation of company profiles, economic papers, and market reviews. This company usually hires Sector Specialists, Consultants and Analysts to work from home.   They pay between $40 and $150 for every hour worked depending on the complexity of the assignment. Alternatively, they also make payments as a fixed fee or commission-share.

7. Upwork

Upwork is a freelance platform with work from home opportunities for accountants. This company makes it their goal to connect professionals and agencies to businesses seeking specialized talent.  Their site offers a wide range of positions and some are even open worldwide.

8. ProBlogger Job Board

Lastly, ProBlogger is a trusted job board with remote bookkeeping and financial jobs. Clients post jobs that users can view directly without needing to create an initial account. Keep in mind, though, you may need to sort through multiple positions to find one that suits you.

Searching for More Firms that Hire Bookkeepers?

In addition to the above sites, I recommend FlexJobs. This membership site provides a wide array of hand-screened jobs from reputable firms. They do have a monthly fee, but you can adjust your account to try it for just one month if you'd like. As an added security, FlexJobs has a money-back guarantee!  Find more bookkeeping and accounting opportunities on FlexJobs.
