You may not have asked yourself that question in so many words, but you may have wondered what sets CPAs apart from other financial professionals and tax and accounting service providers. The answer in short: A lot. We typically begin our careers with years of college and graduate education. To become licensed, we must take the demanding Uniform CPA Examination, which tests our knowledge on a wide range of business topics over a total period of 14 hours. In addition, we have to meet an experience requirement and then be licensed by a State Board of Accountancy to practice. But it doesn’t stop there. Once we become CPAs, we also must meet continuing education requirements to update our knowledge of new business developments as well as commit to a strict code of ethical standards. Armed with this rigorous training, we’re on the job year round (not just during the few busy months of tax filing season), ready to help individuals and businesses address their own unique challenges.
