Do you need a Bookkeeper or an Accountant?

As a small business owner, do you need a bookkeeper, an accountant, or both? Bookkeepers can seem a little mysterious. In fact, they deal with the organisation, the recording and the reporting of financial transactions of a small business.

Simply put, a bookkeeper clears the way for the accountant to work with your business strategically. This means keeping track of daily transactions, sending and managing invoices, handling the accounts payable ledger, keeping an eye on cash flow, and preparing the books for the accountant.

When you’re hiring, make sure you ask whether a bookkeeper has an area of specialization. Some bookkeepers may be able to help train staff in using online accounting or Point-of-Sale systems or give you advice on business processes.
