Frequently Asked Questions

Accountant

What are the differences between an accountant, a CPA, and a bookkeeper?

Firstly, a bookkeeper enters and maintains daily records of a company's financial transactions. They assist in billing/invoicing for goods and services provided, paying suppliers and accounts payable, and handle payroll tasks. The bookkeeper's records is then handed over to an accountant to be analyzed. Once the accountant has analyzed the data, they are able to offer business owner financial projections, and advise them on growing profit margins. A CPA is an accountant certified in their high level of expertise and who has passed a certification exam. Certification is obtained for a particular state, so the CPA can assist both businesses and individuals file tax returns, while using financial data to advise towards future growth.
