Why Should I Hire a CPA?
Brought to you by your local Chandler Arizona CPA, Chandler Bookkeeper, and Chandler Tax Preparer
Remember that in our last article, Joseph Anthony told us how a bookkeeper and CPA/tax preparer working together will bring you the most savings. But what is a CPA really and what do they do? In this little snippet from our friends at valueyourmoney.org, we get a glimpse of the CPA designation and what it means for you (hint: it means tax savings and tax preparation expertise!).
"Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) act as advisers to individuals, businesses, financial institutions, nonprofit organizations and government agencies on a wide range of financial matters. Today, many individuals and businesses turn to CPAs for help with tax preparation, personal financial planning, auditing services, and advice on developing effective accounting systems.
What can a CPA do for you?
CPAs are no longer just number crunchers and tax preparers. They are business and financial strategists who help chart the paths of businesses and individuals. Individuals turn to their CPAs for tax and financial planning services, investment advice, estate planning, and more.
Businesses are tapping CPAs to not only manage finances and taxes, but also to determine profitable new product lines, help diversify investments, and provide a variety of other consulting and business services.
CPA vs. non-CPA
Many people do not know how a CPA is different from a bookkeeper or tax preparer. The CPA designation is one of the most widely recognized and highly trusted professional designations in the business world. CPAs are distinguished from other finance professionals by stringent qualification and licensing requirements.
Individuals have worked hard to obtain the CPA designation, and they are committed to working even harder to deliver the value that it conveys."
