Do you really need a CPA?
You’ve probably accepted the fact that paying taxes and keeping your personal or business finances organized is part of being a responsible citizen, but is it really necessary to hire someone to help you with that? After all, there are many online and off-the-shelf software programs that are very user-friendly and can do everything required to keep your financial house in order. Why spend more of your hard-earned money to pay an accountant to do what you can do yourself?
The fact is that if properly maintaining your books and paying taxes was as easy as some software companies would have you believe, then the profession of certified public accountant wouldn’t exist. The reality is that understanding tax laws and how they apply to your unique financial situation is anything but easy. That’s why CPAs have to meet a number of stringent requirements in order to practice their profession, including:
- Passing a 14-hour exam covering topics such as Auditing and Attestation, Financial Accounting and Reporting, Regulation, and Business Environment and Concepts
- Completing at least 40 hours of continuing education every year
- Completing a peer review by another CPA firm once every three years
Thanks to the wealth of knowledge gained from their extensive training, CPAs can help you in a variety of ways, including:
- Saving you time and money by properly maintaining your business’s financial records
- Helping you with personal and business tax planning and filing
- Giving you advice about managing and growing a business
- Helping you plan for important life events like retirement, attending college, and business succession
