Accountants and bookkeeper functions are very similar. The accountant's purpose is to make sure that financial transactions were all recorded with the proper debits and credits.
In general, the accountant regularly looks at the recorded transactions and prepares adjusting journal entries to balance the books and record transactions that have occurred but not yet been recorded.
After analyzing the journals and ledgers your accountant should not only be able to prepare and enter adjusting entries, but also prepare company financial statements, analyze the cost of operations, as well as providing the business owner with an understanding of the company's financial position and the impact of various financial decisions.
