Every Business, large or small, is required by law to keep its financial records in good order. This involves recording all business transactions into manual records (ledgers) or, more commonly now, into a computerised accounting package, e.g. Sage. From these records a qualified bookkeeper is then able to produce the Final Accounts, comprising the Profit & Loss Account and Balance Sheet.

Qualified Bookkeepers are in great demand and a career as a part-time or full-time bookkeeper can be financially rewarding.
