Summary

The bookkeeper keeps the books and the accountant prepares the financial statements. That is, the bookkeeper takes all of the invoices, credit notes, debit notes, returns notes, petty cash vouchers and all the rest of it, puts them all into order and enters everything into the Journals and the Ledgers. Once everything is entered and checked and double checked, the accountant takes over and prepares the accounting statements of the business.
