Why hire a Certified Public Accountant instead of a bookkeeper or a seasonal tax preparer?
An accountant provides accounting services to individuals and businesses. A Certified Public Accountant is a financial professional who has met strict educational and experience requirements, including the passing of a difficult examination called the Uniform CPA Examination. An accountant is responsible for preparing and analyzing financial documents to ensure taxes are legally paid and all other financial matters are resolved correctly and efficiently. Certified accountants require a combination of education and natural skills for success.
