Why become a bookkeeper?
With the increasing amount of pressure to make tax digital and the future changes that will be implemented by the Government and HMRC, the profession of bookkeeping has never been more important and a perfect time to train in this prestigious field. The role of the bookkeeper has become an essential part of all successful businesses, ensuring that financial transactions are dealt with accurately and efficiently.
With the introduction of technology, streamlining accounts will be a vital importance in providing the information required to comply with the future Government changes, and to help the business owner review and evaluate how their business is running.
The basic system of manual double entry bookkeeping was invented more than five hundred years ago by a Cistercian monk called Luca Pacioli. His bookkeeping system still survives today and is still used throughout the world.
Although technology and accounting software programmes are increasingly becoming more user friendly, the need for a professional bookkeeper has become more apparent. Expertise is required in order to monitor and maintain that the accounting records are processed correctly to a high standard, to provide the business owner with more time to concentrate on the business.
