    Bookkeeping Frequently Asked Questions

    What exactly does a bookkeeper do?

    Bookkeepers, or bookkeeping clerks, are often responsible for the general ledger, which is all of the business accounts.

    Sometimes they may only be responsible for part of the accounts or business ledger. All transactions will then be recorded, most simply in two parts, credits (income) and debits (costs).

    They will provide reports for managers which may include financial statements for the quarter or year.

    Why does a business need bookkeeping?

    All businesses are legally obliged to record all their transactions for tax purposes.

    Whilst there is no set way to do this all expenses, purchases and sales should be recorded.

    Is accountancy and bookkeeping the same?

    Bookkeeping put simply is keeping accurate financial records for a business.

    Do I need a bookkeeper if I have an accountant?

    Accountants and bookkeepers do very different jobs in the businesses they work with.

    Bookkeepers keep their client’s general ledgers up to date, which may include daily data compilation, ensuring accuracy in the accounts, ensuring the accounts are easy to understand and accessible by categorising it appropriately, and generating general financial statements.

    Whereas accountants analyse the data, look for ways to save money in taxation, and prepare tax returns.
