While reviewing this edition of Bookkeeping For Dummies, I have once again been impressed with how well Veechi has captured today’s bookkeeping. While some say bookkeeping doesn’t change, what is very obvious (and what Veechi takes care to explain within these pages) is that the next generation of software development, led by cloud technology, is bringing significant change to a bookkeeper’s approach and techniques.
Bookkeeping For Dummies is a must-read, whether you’re considering doing the books for your own business or whether you’re considering bookkeeping as a career. The combination of step-by-step explanations, background information, tips and warnings will help you gain a rapid and accurate understanding of all requirements. Veechi not only explains the basics, introducing essential bookkeeping concepts, but also embraces more complex and advanced bookkeeping topics, including the latest on the rules and regulations involved with working as a BAS Agent.
I first met Veechi Curtis more than ten years ago at an MYOB accounting software conference. I was the technical presenter and Veechi was there in her capacity as a bestselling author of numerous accounting software and small business titles. Since then — many years, many conferences and many chats later — it has become obvious to me that Veechi has a passion for sharing her knowledge about bookkeeping and small business in a creative and committed way that always sheds new light on the topics.
