What is Bookkeeping?
Bookkeeping is the same as accounting, but describes the lower level functions of accounting. In reality a bookkeeper is a junior accountant, and an accountant is a senior bookkeeper.
Bookkeeping and accounting involves keeping up-to-date and accurate record of all the money and/or goods in a business. Without bookkeeping, it would be impossible to keep track of where they money goes. It helps you to know whether or not you are making a profit and it makes planning ahead much easier.
Keeping the books means that you have to make a specific note of all money coming in and going out of the business. You must also make a note of all the money that is owed to the business and of all the money that the business owes to others.
Proper bookkeeping makes it possible for companies and other organisations to comply with financial regulations and to meet their tax obligations. Without accurate financial records, organisations would not be able to determine their tax liabilities, which would result in penalties being imposed by the local tax collection authorities.
All entities, whether they are public or private, for profit or not for profit, need to keep these careful accounts. That mean’s that with an accounting or bookkeeping qualification you will be to work in just about any industry that interests you.
