Why hire a CPA?
THE CPA CREDENTIAL: NOT ALL ACCOUNTANTS ARE CPAS
While most people use the terms accountant and CPA interchangeably, there are several big differences. The CPA credential carries enormous weight in business and financial circles.
CPAs are considered some of business’ most trusted advisers, according to a recent survey conducted by the American Institute of CPAs. Specifically, small business owners rely on their CPA for business counsel ranking just slightly behind one’s spouse or family member. CPAs are tested, continually educated and regulated by the federal government. Achieving CPA status takes intelligence, ethics, integrity and lifelong commitment.
Candidates must complete some of the toughest business courses at their college or university and pass the Uniform CPA Exam. This test of business, auditing and general accounting skills was developed to ensure the competence of CPAs entering the field, much as the bar exam evaluates lawyers and the medical boards test doctors. The exam is continually revised to meet the changing demands of the profession.
The New Hampshire Board of Accountancy grants certificates and licenses to practice public accountancy to qualified individuals who comply with the requirements of the statute. The Board monitors licensees’ practice of public accountancy to insure that the services provided to the public are in accordance with the ethical standards of New Hampshire Laws and Board regulations. The Board also insures that licensees have complied with all continuing education requirements necessary to renew their licenses.
Accounting graduates must complete 150 educational credits in order to qualify for a CPA certificate. CPAs are required to follow a strict code of ethics as well as perform within the highest standards of the profession. Every three years they must complete 120 hours of continuing professional education to keep up with the new rules and regulations in the financial and accounting world.
Working with a CPA
- Before you contact a CPA, be prepared with goals and objectives of what you want the CPA to do for you. Have a list of questions and a clear idea of what you want to accomplish.
- Before you meet with a CPA, gather all the documents and information you may need – past tax returns, financial statements, investment documents, business plans – and take this information with you to the first meeting.
- Keep your CPA up to date on what’s happening in your life. Are you getting married or divorced, having children, planning for your child’s college education, expanding a business, or giving a business to an heir? You’d be surprised what life situations and events you experience with which your CPA can help you.
