We’re not quite sure exactly when the role of the bookkeeper emerged as a separate role to the role of the accountant. Some time back an accountant was quite simply someone who accounted for things. There was a time when the accountants of the world worked in chickens, pigs and gold. That’s not (so much) the case anymore and the world has moved on to account for things in numbers. So the accountant became someone who accounted for things with numbers.
Now keeping account requires that the numbers be properly recorded, calculated and allocated. The entry of numbers into the books of an entity needs to be accurate. If the books are not accurate then generating and analyzing the reports of an entity is useless. Now we begin to see why the role of the bookkeeper and the role of the accountant need to be closely intertwined. There cannot be any impediment to communication between the two roles if we are to expect the production of relevant and useful reports.
We work with a number of great bookkeepers who constantly keep in touch with us and generate books that are accurate, neat and precise. We also of course offer and maintain a comprehensive bookkeeping service in-house. It’s simple to us – if an accountant doesn’t understand what the bookkeepers are dealing with then they cannot place any reliance on the books. We need accurate and reliable books if we are to properly do our job of providing relevant and appropriate taxation & risk minimization and appropriate structuring advice.
So if you’re looking for ways to make your life easier and are, perhaps, in possession of a desire to make your accountants life easier then talk to us.
To truly understand what you can do then you need an accurate understanding of what you currently have.
