When your small business’s bookkeeping and accounting tasks are too much to handle by yourself, it’s time to hire help. But do you need a bookkeeper or an accountant? Sometimes the terms are used interchangeably, but there are distinct differences, even if their functions overlap.
A bookkeeper, as the name implies, keeps the books of an organization. Bookkeeping is an administrative role that records day-to-day financial transactions, including purchases, receipts, sales, and payments.
Accounting is more subjective, providing business owners with financial insights after analyzing the information taken from bookkeeping data. They produce reports that bring vital aspects of a business’s finances into view and present a complete picture of where a company’s finances stand and what they mean. Windroot accountants will advise you on what you can and should do about your finances and where you can expect to take your business in the near future.
As a business owner, you have a multitude of responsibilities regarding the day-to-day operation of your company.
