Good to Know

What is the difference between the two?

Contrary to popular belief, accountants and bookkeepers perform distinctly different tasks for the businesses they serve. Bookkeepers are responsible for ongoing maintenance of their clients' general ledgers. A bookkeeper's common responsibilities consist of: Compiling data on a daily basis, categorizing expenses in the general ledger, reviewing the general ledger for accuracy, reconciling bank statements against the general ledger, and generating financial statements

Accountants use the accurate and up-to-date general ledger maintained by the bookkeeper to provide advisory services, analyzing the companies financial data, preparing income tax returns and providing tax planning advice.
