What Is Bookkeeping
It's essentially the activity of a business keeping records of its financial affairs. Its invoices, sales, expenditure, R&D, growth activities, and more are all itemized within the books which is then reported to the ATO through a BAS lodgement or end-of-year filing.
How It Has Changed

In the past, you would have to keep records in physical ledgers or books but with modern technology like computers and cloud-based systems, bookkeeping can now be done digitally—saving you time that was normally spent on manual inputting of data.
