      As a bookkeeper who needs a quick reference material (particularly to plug the holes in my knowledge) I don't always want to spend hours searching Google. Reaching for 1 authoritative tomb is much easier!

          This book clearly sets out what is needed to do bookwork. I am a church treasurer and found so much important information in this book. Very easy to understand and great to access "the rules". I would recommend this to all bookkeepers, treasurers etc.
