Do I need a degree to become a bookkeeper?

You do not need an advanced degree to become a bookkeeper. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, you will need to have your high school diploma or equivalent to pursue a career as a professional bookkeeper. Many bookkeepers get started with an online course like this Professional Bookkeeping course. However, in order to stay competitive and open up even more job opportunities down the road, you may want to think about earning an associate degree in bookkeeping or accounting at some point in your career.

Is a bookkeeper the same as an accountant?

Not exactly. There are five major parts to the accounting process and they include: recording, interpreting, classifying, analyzing, and reporting financial information. Bookkeeping is the first, foundational part of the accounting process — recording financial transactions. However, bookkeeping is a great first step into an accounting career and with additional education, you use this as a way to gain experience and become an accountant in the future.

How do I become a bookkeeper?

You will need to have a high school diploma as well as some type of bookkeeping or accounting training to become a professional bookkeeper. An online course like this one is a great place to start. You can try out this great career to ensure that bookkeeping is something you enjoy doing. If you want to stay competitive and qualify for more job opportunities at higher levels down the road, you may want to think about earning an associate degree in bookkeeping or accounting along with your training and experience on the job.

Where do bookkeepers work?

Most bookkeepers work in an office environment during typical 9 to 5 hours and spend a large amount of their time in front of a computer. As a professional bookkeeper, you will usually be working alone but may have a few people from other areas of accounting that work alongside you. It is even possible that you could work remotely from home for one or more organizations at a time.

Do bookkeepers do the taxes for a company?

No, bookkeepers do not do company taxes. Taxes are done by an accountant. However, bookkeepers play an important role in making sure that financial transactions are recorded in a timely and accurate manner. This ensures that the financial information for a company is easy to read and use once it is time for an accountant to take over and do the taxes.
