Bookkeeper or accountant?

In the Netherlands there is a distinction between bookkeepers and accountants. For most middle and small size business (SMEs) is looking for a bookkeeper the cheaper option. A bookkeeper will be able to help you out with all activities. Sometimes, often the case with larger companies, you are required to hire an accountant instead. If you match at least two out of the three criteria mentioned below, you are obliged to consult an accountant. If you do not match these criteria, then a bookkeeper is sufficient. 

  • Revenue is more than 12 million euros;
  • Assets on the balance sheet are more than 5.5 million euros;
  • You have more than 50 employees on your payroll.

In addition, a big difference between bookkeepers and accountants in the Netherlands is that an accountant is a protected profession. To become an accountant, you need a bachelor or master’s degree in accounting. Accountants have a controlling role. On the other hand, a bookkeeper is a more administrative title and everybody is able to start a job as a bookkeeper.

We already indicated above that bookkeepers are often a lot cheaper than accountants. However, besides price, it is important that you pay attention to the most efficient bookkeeper or accountant. That means someone who will stick to the deadlines and likes to think along with you. Some bookkeepers or accountants will only commit to the bookkeeping and just let you run your business. However, the best bookkeepers and accountants will help you make the best decisions for your company and help you to solve problems. 

We advise you to take the time carefully to choose a suitable bookkeeper or accountant. In this article (Dutch language!) we discuss the 7 most important competences of bookkeepers and accountants:

  • Great communication skills;
  • Stress resistant;
  • Creativity;
  • Knowledge of IT;
