Bookkeeping Training Course Description

What will I learn in the Bookkeeping Training Course?

What is Bookkeeping?

In the Bookkeeping Training Course, you will learn how to record a company’s financial transactions to enable the company to track all information on its books to make key operating, investing, and financing decisions.

When you first get started in business, you may hear the terms bookkeeping and accounting thrown around almost interchangeably. However, these terms do not mean the same thing. Small businesses have both bookkeeping and accounting functions.

Bookkeeping is the process of recording and maintaining the record of all financial transactions of a company. Bookkeepers record the company’s sales, expenses, and cash/bank transactions in journals (the company’s books).

The accounting function prepares a record of the financial affairs of the company. Accounting also includes the interpretation of the bookkeeper’s numbers to determine the firm’s financial health. It also consists of the presentation and financial health and control functions of the company through various statements.

In most businesses, the bookkeeper operates under the accountant. In small businesses, the accountant may be the owner or Chief Financial Officer (CFO), or the accounting function may be outsourced.
