Technological advances in accounting software and business processes are having a huge impact on the role of the bookkeeper as we once knew it. Where the bookkeeper only used to focus on capturing documents and maintaining accounts, there is now a definite shift towards new value-adding tasks such as the two below:
- Bookkeepers are now playing an advisory role to clients regarding their accounting software and what type of data should be provided and how it should be provided, with the aim of assisting good decision-making.
- Bookkeepers are now managers of data rather than data capturers. The focus has shifted to data integrity and security.
The arrival of these new tasks brings heightened focus on the subject of ethics and compliance. There now is definite need for bookkeepers to comply with ethics.
