The close tracking of expenses and recording transactions are crucial for business owners to ensure their finances are handled perfectly. Though it seems easy enough to do by yourself, it can be more tedious and time consuming than you realise. Most people have a misconception that bookkeepers and accountants share similar goals, but the truth is that they play different roles at different stages of the financial cycle.
Bookkeeping is the process of recording daily transactions in a consistent way. The bookkeeper is responsible for
- Recording financial transactions
- Producing invoices
- Posting debits & credits
- Completing payroll
- Maintaining subsidiaries, historical accounts and general ledgers
The complexity of the above processes depend greatly on the size of the business and the number of transactions completed within a specific period of time. The bookkeeper feed all the sales and purchases made by your business in a ledger. In fact, maintaining the general ledger is one of the most important components of bookkeeping.
Accounting is an advanced process that involves producing financial models using the information compiled by a bookkeeper. The process of accounting is more slanted as compared to bookkeeping. An tax accountant is responsible for
- Adjusting entries
- Performing audits
- Preparing financial statements & balance sheets
- Tax planning & tax filing
- Compiling income tax returns
- Analysing cost of business operation
- Forecasting business trends and opportunity for growth
- Restricting spending to manage cash flow
