What is a CPA?

What Is A Cpa

To keep it short and sweet, a CPA is a licensed public accountant

If you want to know how your business is doing and if things are actually going well, a CPA will whip up a report to let you know! They tell you what that overwhelmingly long list of numbers actually means, break things down in a way that’s easy to understand and show you how you can earn and save more money in your business. 

Basically, a CPA is your personal business consultant. 

Nice, right? 

Are CPAs and accountants the same thing?

A CPA is an accountant, but not all accountants are CPAs. 

Simply put – CPAs are more expensive than your average accountant because they can represent your business in a legal scenario, like an IRS audit. So you’re literally paying for this bonus. 

But, good news! A CPA isn’t your only option!

A certified accountant can help you too!

They’ll stop you from making mistakes money-wise you didn’t know you were about to make. And no one likes wasting money they could have saved!  

An accountant can help you… 

Make smart choices

An accountant handles your money like a pro (it’s their job) and tells you what can be saved and how. They see potential in the books where you can’t. 

Stay trouble-free

Maybe you’re not ready to deal with the big (and scary) legal rules the government enforces. And, let’s face it, they’re not always easy to understand. Not to fear! An accountant handles this for you. 

Earn more money 

Your accountant gives a solid strategy so you make more money than you lose. They also speed up things to maximize a nice business profit. They think of ways for your funds to earn bigger results. 

Next steps 

A CPA may sound ideal, sure. We all like extra protection! 

But, the truth is, it’s not always necessary. Maybe all you need is an accountant who already does many of the things a CPA does.

If you’re not a number person – that’s okay! You do what’s best for your business. Let an accountant do theirs!
