Accounting Services Frequently Asked Questions

What are CPA firms, and how do they differ from accounting firms?

CPAs are a subcategory of accountants: All CPAs are accountants, but the same is not true in reverse. The critical differences between CPAs and accountants relate to courses of study, qualifications, and licensing. To qualify as a CPA, an accountant must complete roughly 150 hours of additional courses and pass a licensing exam in their state. They must also commit to continuing their education and routinely updating their knowledge of current accounting practices throughout their career.

A CPA firm will be owned, at least partially, by a CPA. Non-CPA accounting firms will not typically have a CPA on staff.

What do CPA firms do?

CPA firms are accounting firms that offer a degree of specialism beyond the accounting and tax services and levels of expertise offered by generalized accounting firms. Though CPA firms do assist with compiling and filing tax returns, they also offer a wide array of other services, from bookkeeping, payroll, and tax services to audits, forensic accounting, and much more.

A quality CPA firm may become a trusted financial adviser to a business, supporting them in getting the most out of their money and making smart future decisions as well as remaining in compliance with all applicable legal and regulatory requirements.

What is the difference between accounting and economic costs?

Accounting costs represent the actual funds that your business spends on accounting services and related activities. Economic costs (also known as opportunity costs), however, represent the “what if?” questions that arise when your organization is choosing which course of action to take. In other words, an economic cost or opportunity cost is the potential forgone income as a result of choosing one option over another.

How do accounting and finance work together?

Accounting refers to an array of services, including bookkeeping, payroll, tax preparation, and the other services we have outlined above. Finance, however, is a broader term that refers to an organization’s overall activities, systems, and position related to money. The term “finance” might refer to aspects of money use and management, including investing, budgeting, forecasting, and borrowing.

Can accounting be done remotely?

Technology provides a great opportunity to work with your choice of CPA firm from almost any location. You should find a CPA firm based on your comfort with their professional services and method of delivery, whether remote or in-person.

Are accounting services taxable?

Unlike many professional services, accounting services are subject to sales tax. However, the costs for accounting services are also tax-deductible because they are considered a cost of doing business.
