The dictionary definition of bookkeeping is defined as “the skill or occupation of maintaining accurate records of business transactions.”

In simple terms, bookkeeping is recording and organising financial data.


When it comes to accounting, the dictionary states accounting as “the skill or practice of maintaining and auditing accounts and preparing reports on the assets, liabilities etc of a business.”

Basically, accounting takes all of that important financial data, prepares reports for business owners and investors and ready’s the reports for HMRC.

Bookkeepers vs Accountants

by bracknelsonforume In reply to Bookkeeping or Accounting ...

A bookkeeper's job is to maintain complete records of all money that has come in and gone out of the business. Bookkeepers record daily transactions in a consistent, easy-to-read way.

An accountant analyzes the financial data recorded by the bookkeeper and provides business owners with important business insights and financial advice based on that information.
