Bookkeeping is the most basic of all accounting functions
Bookkeeping is the most basic of all accounting functions. Bookkeeping involves maintaining accurate and updated records of all of your company’s financial activity. This includes bank records, tax filings, payroll records, purchases and sales record, and regulatory filings. These records are essential to regulatory compliance. Proper bookkeeping makes other accounting functions, such as audits, payroll, and tax preparation, much simpler and less time consuming.
