Bookkeeping is the daily act of recording, retaining, and retrieving financial transactions for a certain business. It is done by companies to keep track of all operations that occur within the entity and be aware of their current financial position. Often companies do not hire a full-time bookkeeper to work for them because of the cost and settle for a temporary bookkeeper who signs a Bookkeeping Agreement.
A Bookkeeping Agreement (or "Bookkeeping Contract") is a legal agreement signed by a company and a bookkeeper who provides bookkeeping services for a one time or short term. This is the document for you if you need a business arrangement that involves recording receipts from customers, verifying invoices from suppliers and paying them, and processing employees' wages.

Consider signing a Bookkeeping Contract to formalize your verbal agreement with another party. A bookkeeper is not an agent of the company, its broker, or an employee, and is engaged as an independent contractor. Complete this agreement to ensure services are performed at high standards and the bookkeeper is paid for their services fully and on time.
