What exactly does a bookkeeper do?

The information they collate is fundamental for all large and small business owners and accounting services to make key monetary decisions and provides support and benefit to save time.
Bookkeeping is a subcategory of accounting and can be done by many accountants or people with bookkeeping training. Their work provides the core, essential commercial infrastructure that leads to more advanced accounting practices to be processed.
The recording of monetary information process is more complex than simply copying invoices into a spreadsheet. Data entry is just one of the tasks a bookkeeper carries out; they must also have a strong understanding of specialist accounting software.

Data reconciliation is another important aspect of the work of a bookkeeper, to ensure there is consistency between businesses records and bank statements.
Bookkeepers are not accountants, but the two professions have a very close relationship. It is therefore important that there is strong communication and mutual support between bookkeepers and accounting professionals to ensure business operations run smoothly.

What are the requirements for bookkeeping and accounting records?
Providing your accounting and bookkeeping assistance with the full range of facts and info they need to keep your monetary records in good shape should not be too difficult or time-consuming. With a little planning, it can easily be implemented into your daily operations.
The most important thing is that all your receipts need to be transferred to your accountant, so you must be consistent about collecting them and passing them on. Essentially, your role will be to provide physical evidence of every transaction your business makes – everything from bills paid to money received for goods/services.
Many financial receipts for customers and clients in the modern world are done via electronic transactions, particularly monthly bills. This information can easily be forwarded to your bookkeeper. For anything still done on paper, such as till receipts or invoices, you must put them aside and keep them safe until they are in the hands of your accountant.
When you get a receipt, take a moment to note what it is for on the back, and include info like where you were and who you were with (where applicable). Even if your receipts are packed into a shoebox or piled together, your bookkeeper will take them.
You must also consider how you want your bookkeeper to access your bank accounts information. You could provide direct access online for the most streamlined experience. Your bookkeeper will need all the information about your assets and liabilities.
Essentially, the more information you provide to your bookkeeper, the better they will be able to do their job.
