    Rachel has a good explanation there, and that's exactly what bookkeeping is. Schools have them, banks have them, doctors and hospitals have them, all your stores. Millionaires and Billionaires have bookkeepers to keep track of their taxes. Even keeping track of your checking account on withdrawals and deposits is bookkeeping.
