What’s the difference between a bookkeeper and an accountant? Including a free download of the chart. Bookkeeping and Accounting have some overlap, but they are very different roles. In this video I talk about the differences between bookkeepers and accountants including: schooling/certification, how much bookkeepers/accountants get paid, differing roles, and how they work together. This is part of my “What does a bookkeeper do?” series.

  1. A smart move would be to obtain an EA or ASFP on top of bookkeeping work and completely limit the need for a CPA… Don’t get me wrong… learning tax is tough but a seasoned EA can and will outperform a CPA any day of the week… I call EA,s the Swiss Army knife of tax.

  2. I am trying to decide if I want to get my Accounting Certification, associates, or bachelors. I noticed online that a lot of the jobs available for a bookkeeper require a degree. I just do not want to go into debt getting a bachelors if it is not necessary but then how do you get your foot in the door?

  3. 3:20 yes, the main reason is that accountants have studied the theory, so they set things up to be in compliance with GAAP. Quarterly taxes are usually a thing unless the taxes owed are less than $1000. Then the IRS won’t really give you a penalty.
