What's the difference between Accounting and Bookkeeping anyway?

I am often asked this question. So, here's the simple answer:

An accountant is often responsible for creating the financial system that contains the daily transactions of a business. They perform financial anlysis of the business to help the owner with: 1)  Business management, 2) Taxes, 3) Forecasting, and more.

A bookkeeper is usually responsible for the data entry of daily transactions into the accounting system.
