Accounting and bookkeeping for the Education Sector in the UK

In the education sector, bookkeeping serves as the foundation for sound financial management. Educational institutions, including schools, colleges, and universities, handle various financial transactions such as tuition fees, government funding, payroll, and purchasing supplies and equipment.
