Why Hire A CPA (Certified Public Accountant)?







     A CPA or a certified public accountant can be one of the most important human resource assets of any organization, but many organizations do not realize their importance or have incorrect or partial knowledge about how to reap benefits from hiring a CPA. Before discussing why an organization should hire a CPA, let us know more about the responsibilities of a CPA.

A CPA is a professional who may work individually or act on the part of an accounting-firm. He or she monitors and keeps track of the financial records of an organization or an individual. Every year numerous businessmen question the need to engage a CPA for account purposes, when all a CPA seems responsible for is filing statutory paperwork for the government and delivering a profit and loss statement.

Many businesses are unorganized or are headed by individuals who are too busy to organize their finances. A CPA looks after the financial statements and records of the client. They are trained and experienced and that makes them the perfect choice to trust all your accounts with.

To become a CPA, one has to meet the requirements laid down by American Institute of Certified Public Accountant (AICPA). There are some states that strictly require a CPA to have a minimum experience level, before starting off to practice. However, not all states lay down the same rules.

A CPA need not be hired all year round and typically in an organization where there is an accounts department already existent, a CPA is hired for a short time only to prepare professionally the tax returns. However, some businessmen do keep a regular CPA to ensure that their finances are in order. Taxes are the specialty of a CPA. In fact most of them are hired to take care of all applied taxes. CPAs are experts in filing multiple federal as well as state tax returns and they also know how to accurately organize all the receipts and other document verifications required for tax deductions.

While hiring a CPA, some businessmen or organizations look out for CPAs who are located in the same area of the business, so that in the event of some unexpected problem cropping up, he can be contacted immediately. Some businessmen however, prefer to hire a CPA who has a successful track record, even if he is located across the nation.

The above mentioned reasons are good enough to hire a CPA, but if there is still doubt, there are other good reasons as well. Most organizations seek help from a CPA to preserve their financial records safely and to file tax returns for them. A CPA can supervise budgeting processes, setting up of financial systems, including making quick books, training staff and giving money saving ideas etc, along with being a sounding board that gives sound advice.

Organizations never seem to exploit a CPAs skill properly. With the type of command the CPAs have over the financial domain, the organizations can benefit a lot from their expertise. Time is precious and instead of spending hours on reviewing and sorting your finances only to find out that you have erred, it would be much better and easier to just pick up the phone or log on to the Internet and fix an appointment with a trained and experienced CPA.
