Should I hire a CPA or a bookkeeper?
Oftentimes I have clients ask me what the difference is between a bookkeeper-accountant and a CPA. A CPA is someone who has been certified by the state as having the knowledge and experience to help people and businesses with their taxes in their bookkeeping someone comes to you and says they’re either an accountant or bookkeeper may have no experience may have no knowledge in that area.
Anyone can come up to you and say that they are a bookkeeper and that they can do your books but yet they’ll do your books and you’re not sure if it’s right in any way. You’re relying on this person to make sure that your finances are in order and if they are not, it can have detrimental effects on the future of your business, especially for matters of payroll and taxes. I find that only a CPA can give you the comfort and reassurance that you have somebody knowledgeable and experienced is handling your books and your taxes. You want to avoid any trouble with the government regarding your taxes. It can be confusing for someone who is inexperienced to handle the finances of a business that makes sales and hires employees from many different states throughout the country. The last thing you want is to find yourself in hot water concerning your business finances so it is best to hire an experienced, certified public accountant.
