Bookkeeping or Bookkeeper

Bookkeeping is the recording of financial transactions and an integral part of the accounting process. It involves preparing source documents for all transactions be it, operating, investing, or financing activities. Usually, the person recording these transactions is referred to as the Bookkeeper.

The earliest books date back to 2600 BCE found in Babylonian records written on small slabs of clay. I imagine retaining records in those times required larger muscles than we have today. The things we had to carry around with us way back when is no more. What used to take up several bookshelves is now saved in the cloud. Complete libraries of books, music, pictures, movies, and more may take up a server rack somewhere in the desert.

Today we use cloud accounting applications like QuickBooks online. These solutions save business owners time and money by syncing financial data from their checking and credit card accounts. No more keying manual entries. Paper is unnecessary, wasteful, and cumbersome to store. Adding a document management cloud solution to the mix creates a complete digital accounting solution for your small business or nonprofit. The paper is eliminated.
