What is a Bookkeeper?
20 years ago, or maybe a bit more, a Bookkeeper was exactly what it says on the tin. They kept the physical books of the company in order. Every time an invoice was issued to a customer, it was written in the right place, and every time a bill came in or was paid, it was written down also.
Times have changed………….
With the rapid expansion of computing, automation and AI the role of a Bookkeeper could have become obsolete, but instead it has evolved.
Bookkeepers make sure that the right sales, purchase and bank information is recorded in the computer accounting software (often cloud accounting now) , along with the right VAT treatment and that every penny is accounted for. Then when the accountant comes to do the annual accounts and tax returns, everything is a hell of a lot easier!
