Brilliant like a Bookkeeper

Have you ever heard the expression – “number cruncher”?

How about, “bean counter”?

People tend to think the world of Accounting is boring, dull – without any creativity.

The truth of the matter is that accountants are faced with a whole range of new challenges and tasks every day! Creative problem solving and a keen sense of business are crucial attributes for most forms of accounting.

Bookkeepers are the detail orientated professionals who keep the business running behind the scenes. Financial accountants often create procedures and outlines for a department, and trust the bookkeepers to carry out the tasks quickly and efficiently. This is important because the data collected by the bookkeepers is used to guide management when making decisions about the future of the business.
