A lot of teenagers would dream to become a certified and professional accountant as their main profession because of the good name and position it brings to the teen’s mind. They are thinking that accounting is just as easy as counting numbers and money and writing the numbers and names in a sheet of paper and it is finally done. But being an accountant is more than this kind of imagination as most of the things that you have to do is to balance the numbers and the expenditures, too. It is about making the things complete with the right information and data as it would give a good result by not having too much or little in the figures.
There are many companies that would hire a lot of professional accountant to work in their company and make business for them when it comes to computation of the earnings. They would have different duties when it comes to the department as some would be auditing the income and others would have to input all the expenses of the company. There are smaller companies that can hire accountant due to the limited source of funds and it is a waste of money as well as they have paid every month. They would just hire a bookkeeper and manage everything about the expenses of the daily earnings and companies and at the same time they could look at it to monitor.

You have to know the main difference between the job and duty of a bookkeeper from an accountant so that you would have an idea to which one to focus.

Many people would differentiate the two when it comes to the certifications of the degrees as for accountant you have to finish the 4 year-course while for bookkeeper is vocational.
