After a hard day’s work it may well be the last thing you feel like doing, but unfortunately, bookkeeping doesn’t prepare itself! When doing bookkeeping we therefore we usually want to do it as quickly and simply as possible. At the same time however it has to be accurate, otherwise it will not be worth the paper it’s written on (or memory chip it’s saved on).
