Most business owners do not particularly like bookkeeping. They wind up doing it on the weekends or in the small hours of the morning when they would rather be with their loved ones. On the other hand, a bookkeeper oversees running the finance department of a business daily. They make sure that new hires complete all necessary paperwork, follow up on submitted invoices, and pay the bills. Along with filing any additional reports to creditors or investors, bookkeepers also maintain track of business spending to ensure that every expense is put into the software and accurately recorded so that the company is prepared for tax season.
