This is a day in the life of a bookkeeper that will give you an idea of a bookkeeper job description. In here I talk about my daily work from home schedule and go through 2 of my bookkeeping clients’ workload. I show you how I input checks, categorize expenses, record income, and more. Hopefully this will be helpful if you’re a bookkeeper or thinking of starting a bookkeeping business.

What Bussines license do you need to update?
Do only do clients in your area or do you have clients in other cities/states?
I’ve had clients from all over!
Do i have to have an accounting degree? i want to take a book keeping course, but do you think this is enough?
It’s not enough. I went that route. I’m currently signing up for school to learn bookkeeping again. It’s going to take 2 years to get my degree
How much do you charge to do yearly books for small businesses?
Thanks and please don’t stop . This is helpful.
Thank you so much for these videos! I am currently a bookkeeper at a firm but thinking of doing this on the side for a small client. Do you have an Instagram or email where I could connect with you to pick your brain on going out on your own? Thanks again
I’m interested in becoming a bookkeeper, so being a newbie and no experience or certificate/diploma what would you suggest I do yo start off ? Is coursera a good way of starting off with certificates ?
I like that you help facilitate people who would be better off doing their own books at their current point. It’s not only morally current (imo) but would definitely make them more likely to come back to you when they grow beyond what the owner can manage because they already know you have their best interest in mind.
How much do you pay for quick books? Is it monthly or yearly payment. Also if you have one quick books account, you can add multiple companies into your account?
If you use QBO Accountant version it’s set up for you to manage each of your clients within the dashboard. You log in with your name and you see each of your clients listed there. They can also have their own logins (to just see their own company). QBOA is “free” for you, but each client will need to pay for their QB subscription at whichever level they choose (plus, advanced, etc). You can also choose to roll your clients QBO fee into what you charge them (as you can get their subscription discounted by using the accountant version). Morgan talks more about it in this video: https://youtu.be/hyKoi3Lhncg -Gabe (FinePoints Admin)
Thank you Morgan for this video.
I was told that you need to be an accountant first in order to be a bookkeeper, is this true? because I am not interested in going back to college, it’s way too expensive.
You do not need any certifications to be a bookkeeper, nor do you need to be an accountant. Some accountants choose to add bookkeeping to their services, but not a requirement to be an accountant. Hope that helps! -Gabe (FinePoints Admin)
@FinePoints thank you so much!!
Thank you! This video explained a lot for me. I work a 40 hour week and want to pick up bookkeeping as a side gig to support my family. I also want the experience as I’m working towards my bachelors degree. Sounds accomplishable now!
Sounds like you are taking all the right steps! So glad this video helped you out 🙂 -Gabe (FinePoints Admin)
Just got my Level 1
Thanks for your video it’s very nice, I’m training to be a bookkeeper, I’m subscribed to you now. Thank you 😊 your nice
