What is the difference between a bookkeeper and an accountant?

This question comes up often.  The biggest difference between a bookkeeper and an accountant is money.  Accountants charge a much higher rate and are best used in analyzing the financial strategies of a business.  Bookkeepers help more with tracking the day to day finances of your business.  Both are important to your business.  Knowing the difference between them can save you lots of money in the long run.

Why would you need to hire a bookkeeper?

If getting a clear financial picture of your business is important to you, than, you need a bookkeeper.  You need to achieve an organized system of storing your financial records.  You also need to know where you are financially in order to make decisions on upgrading machinery, spending money on marketing and for obtaining loans.  You can learn to do all this yourself, but it’s much easier to find a bookkeeper you can trust and build a relationship with and take the pressure off.  Focus on what you do best, with a reliable bookkeeper, you’ll know it’s all taken care of and have peace of mind.

How much time will you spend?
