What is a CPA?


A CPA is a strategic business advisor who helps individuals and businesses plan and reach their financial goals. Many certified public accountants work in the field of public accounting in CPA firms ranging from a sole practitioner to a large international CPA firm. However, many certified public accountants work outside of public accounting. These CPAs can be found working in manufacturing, financial services, not-for-profit organizations, health care, government agencies, education, and more.
