Bookkeeping FAQs

What exactly does a bookkeeper do?

Bookkeepers are involved in the day-to-day administration of a business. They are responsible for keeping accurate records of business transactions. They also look after functions like accounts payable and accounts receivable.

What is the difference between a bookkeeper and an accountant?

A bookkeeper records the details of business transactions whereas an accountant prepares annual financial statements and provides advice on things like business strategy and tax. Bookkeeping specialists like GroForth also explain how to use accounting software and can either manage your entire bookkeeping process for you or provide support for your staff if you manage your bookkeeping in-house.

Why is it important that your bookkeeper is properly qualified?

“As a charity first setting up, we were lucky enough to benefit from free training on a recommended book-keeping platform from GroForth. The initial training was broken up into bite-sized sessions that really enabled us to get to grips with the service. What has been even more beneficial than that initial training has been the on-going support they have provided to us since those early days. They are consistently on-hand to provide advice and support and this has really helped to ensure that our financial management reporting is both accurate and of the highest quality.”
