Frequently Asked Questions

In a business, a bookkeeper is assigned diverse duties. He or she provides, manages, and records day-to-day financial transactions for a business. Other tasks include reconciling bank accounts, preparing payrolls, filing taxes, and working with an accountant.

Besides being one of the oldest professions, bookkeeping is vital for effective financial and legal management in any business. Maintaining accurate financial records is a good way to assess, streamline, and budget resources and costs.

No, they’re not. Even though they are both essential parts of managing finances, Bookkeeping is one of the foundations of Accounting. Accounting begins once Bookkeeping ends.

A degree isn’t necessary to become a bookkeeper. Even a high school graduate can learn on the job. A reputable training center like Fine can help you learn the basics of bookkeeping. You can also become a TESDA-certified bookkeeper with our Bookkeeping NCIII course.
