WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN AN ACCOUNTANT, A CPA AND A BOOKKEEPER?
Bookkeepers, accountants and certified public accountants (CPAs) all work with businesses' financial data. Bookkeepers record when a company receives, pays or owes money. Accountants provide more in-depth analysis than bookkeepers. A CPA or certified public accountant is an accountant with a state license. Most small and mid-sized businesses and non-profit organization do not need to spend thousands of dollars a year to have a CPA. Valley Accounting LLC helps give the professional and in-depth services provided by CPA's without the added cost.
