Things CPAs Do That Accountants Can't.
What can a CPA do that accountants can't?
This question surfaces a lot, especially when one is trying to decide whether or not they want to become a Certified Public Accountant! Knowing these details can create a clear picture of the differences between a CPA and an accountant! AND there is a noticeable difference in comparison between a CPA and an accountant. The list above is the four major things CPAs can do that accounts can't/ or usually don't do. For example, only CPAs are allowed to represent a taxpayer before the IRS when there has been an audit, they are also the only ones to be able to construct audited financial statements.
I hope this email has clarified and provided an understanding of the difference between CPAs and accountant duties. Being a CPA could also help grow your firm - developing more opportunities and clients!
