Bookkeeping can be a fulltime job in its own right and is also a first step on the ladder to becoming an accountant. Accounting can seem quite intimidating at first. There appear to be lots of rules and unusual terms. Fortunately your first steps as a bookkeeper are usually limited to handling the record keeping that the more experienced, qualified accountants can use.
