Many people wonder why they should choose a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) instead of a bookkeeper or tax preparer. The answer is that the CPA designation is one of the most widely recognized and trusted professional designations in the business world. Stringent qualification and licensing requirements help set CPAs apart from other accounting, tax, and finance professionals. In addition to education and experience requirements, CPAs must pass an intense four part exam that encompasses a large body of knowledge in accounting, business, and law. Beyond that, CPAs must pass background checks and other pre-licensing qualifications as determined by the State Board of CPA Examiners. Rigorous continuing professional education requirements help keep CPAs abreast of the latest changes in accounting and tax law so that you as the client can rest assured that you are getting the most accurate advice and best service possible.
Although other individuals such as Enrolled Agents (EAs), Registered Tax Return Preparers (RTRPs), and accountants may be trained in certain aspects of tax or accounting, they lack the all-around expertise that only licensed CPAs possess. In addition to our professional designations, we at Staton CPA uphold the highest standards of professionalism and integrity.
While some tax and accounting outfits thrive on the quantity of returns or clients they can turn out in a given amount of time, we at Staton CPA believe CPAs should provide a much higher level of service to their clients. Personal service cannot be commoditized. We want to serve as your trusted adviser and look forward to a long and mutually satisfying relationship. Thanks for choosing Staton CPA.
