Bookkeeper’s are someone who ensures that all of a company’s expenses, income, and transactions are recorded in the company’s books and reconcile the company’s financial accounts, typically on a monthly basis. Their role at a company varies by the size and nature of the business. They also produce financial statements and other reports for supervisors and managers.

In Australia, the ICB offers a certificate in bookkeeping and accounting that is the minimum qualification needed if you want to be a registered business activity statement (BAS) agent.
Increasingly, Members will have achieved the Certificate IV in Bookkeeping.
