People frequently get confused by the terms “accountant” and “bookkeeper”. The two are closely related, but in simple terms a bookkeeper records all the financial transactions of the business by entering them into the “books” on a day-to-day basis whereas accountants deal with the big picture and interpret the financial information provided by the bookkeeper.

The” books” are the financial records of the business.

Accounting includes evaluating the efficiency of the business operations, cash flow and profit forecasting as well as auditing to ensure the accuracy of financial information.
