Should I study Bookkeeping OR Accounting?

Bookkeeping is an element of accounting. It’s quicker to get qualified, meaning it’s a faster route to kick-starting a new career. However, you don’t have to choose one or the other. You can study both bookkeeping and accounting simultaneously, or you can become a qualified bookkeeper first, and then expand your skill set by studying an accountancy course later. Since all our bookkeeping and accountancy courses are online, you can even fit your studies around your work.

What opportunities are there, after I’ve completed my online bookkeeping course?

The demand for bookkeepers is expected to keep rising. As a result, there will always be opportunities for talented and certified individuals.

Ensuring you are technically competent is vital, given the rise of lots of new bookkeeping and accountancy tools that are disrupting the marketplace. The majority of these tools are designed and developed to make your life easier. With new technologies such as automatic receipt recognition, so as to avoid time-inefficient tasks like entering bills and receipts manually.

Options include working ‘in-house’ – where you work directly for one company; working for an accounting agency – where you’re responsible for multiple companies. or working for yourself – on a contract or freelance basis.
