What is an accountant?

An accountant is a certified professional that maintains and communicates accurate financial information of a business, organization, or person. Their responsibilities entail:

  • Maintaining accurate financial records
  • Preparing and filing tax returns
  • Performing audits
  • Tax planning
  • Revenue planning

Some people choose to have a separate bookkeeper to maintain the financial records. In this case, the accountant reviews the monthly generated reports to assure you are on track with your revenue and tax planning goals. Routine meetings are common to review your current status and adjust your plan accordingly. In short, your accountant’s main duty is to make you successful.

Regardless of the industry, accountants are essential assets. Why? They are knowledgeable of industry market trends and are current on tax laws. Nonprofits and even Fortune 500 corporations use accountants. Shouldn’t your practice invest in one as well? Of course! The best investments are those that work hard for you in return. Therefore, leave the financial planning to the experts. Hire an accountant today!
