Accounting vs Bookkeeping

So, what is accounting? How is it different than bookkeeping? 

Bookkeeping is the process of actually recording financial information, while accounting is the broader term to describe the whole process that includes bookkeeping, analysis, and reporting. 

Accounting also can be:

  • Accountants Payable
  • Accounts Receivable
  • Forensic Accounting
  • Governmental Accounting
  • Tax Accounting
  • Managerial Accounting
  • Financial Accounting

Lisa focuses on accountants payable, accounts receivable, tax accounting, and managerial accounting. 

In addition to performing accounting functions herself, she is an ideal candidate to oversee your current books — especially if you are working with a CPA that prefers not to do bookkeeping or payroll. Lisa enjoys working with other accountants and CPA’s.

Lisa does not perform Governmental Accounting services at this time; however, she performs bookkeeping work for one of the leading governmental accountants in the area that she will gladly recommend, if needed.
