Are you thinking about a new career? Do you like working with numbers? Do you have the commitment to stick with a training program? Do you want to go into bookkeeping or accounting? What is the education needed to obtain a bookkeeping or accounting position? What is the difference in salary between the two professions? Bookkeeping and accounting often get used interchangeably, however there are differences between the two. Both accountants and bookkeepers are essential to the successful operation of a business, and both are great assets to the financial side of things.
