What does a bookkeeper do?

People often wonder what the difference between accounting and bookkeeping is. Bookkeeping is just one segment of the entire accounting cycle. It is the method of taking your day-to-day activities/transactions and then recording them in a ledger, whether it be manually or electronically. Accounting services will then commence by using the information from bookkeeping to prepare the financial information and reports. 

Having accurate bookkeeping of your transactions is the first step to being able to have accurate financial reporting – which equivalates to checking off steps 1-3 of the diagram below. Steps 4-8 are completed when performing the year end engagement (Corporate Tax and Financial Statements).

Why is bookkeeping important?

Business Growth and Planning

Proper financial data tracking is not just about managing the day to day operations of a business. It is also about being able to plan for the future. By tracking data in areas such as inventory, cash flow, profit and loss statements, expansion, and hiring, business owners can make informed decisions about their long-term goals and strategies.

Providing Accurate Financial Information

The key to making informed decisions in any business is access to accurate financial information. This includes properly reported and up-to-date books, which are essential for running the day to day operations of the business.

Logical Decision-Making

Many business owners tend to make decisions on the fly, without considering the financial impacts. This can be especially dangerous if they don’t have accurate financial data to help guide their decision-making process. Having up-to-date bookkeeping and proper financial data tracking can help ensure that business decisions are based on logic, rather than guesswork.
