Bookkeeping is the recording of financial transactions. Transactions include
sales, purchases, income, receipts, and payments by an individual or
organization. Bookkeeping is usually performed by a bookkeeper. Many individuals
mistakenly consider bookkeeping and accounting to be the same thing. This
confusion is understandable because the accounting process includes the
bookkeeping function, but bookkeeping is just one part of the accounting
process. Most small business owners do their own bookkeeping reducing the
charges they incur from their accountant. The accountant creates reports from
the recorded financial transactions provided by the bookkeeper and files forms
with government agencies.
