Understanding the ins and outs of financial management can be daunting when you're starting a business. However, knowing the difference between accounting and bookkeeping is crucial for your financial success. Let's delve into how bunq can simplify these tasks for you.

What is Bookkeeping?

Bookkeeping involves recording daily transactions in a consistent way, which is vital to building a financially successful operation. It ensures that records of individual financial transactions are accurate, up-to-date, and comprehensive. With bunq's bookkeeping feature, you'll have an easier time managing this task.

What is Accounting?

While bookkeeping records transactions, accounting interprets, classifies, analyzes, reports, and summarizes this financial data. Accounting gives you insights into your business’s financial health, helping you make informed decisions. You can use bunq's Insights feature to get a clear view of your financial state.

How Do They Work Together?

Bookkeeping and accounting are two functions of financial management that work hand-in-hand. Bookkeeping lays the groundwork with solid record-keeping, while accounting uses this information to provide financial insights.
