Credentials and Professional Licenses
Most business executives and individuals are aware that in order for a qualified accounting professional to use the term “CPA” (Certified Public Accountant) that they MUST pass a series of exams, attend continuing education courses, and have a minimum amount of professional service time. These standards are dictated by the governing California Board of Accountancy.
While many individuals and small firms advertise that they provide bookkeeping, accounting, or tax preparation services, they may not be board certified. Be sure to ask if they have their CPA credentials, and ask them for their license number.
- Check the license status from the California Board of Accountancy web page or call the Board at (916) 263-3680. Specifically, make sure that the CPA’s license is current and inquire whether there has been any disciplinary action taken against the licensee.
- Ask if the CPA has been renewed with continuing education and how long the firm/he/she has been licensed.
- Some CPAs are authorized to provide services including attest engagements while others can provide accounting, compilation preparation, management advisory, financial advisory, tax and consulting services but will not be authorized to sign reports on attest engagements. Make sure you determine what services you require for your business and select a CPA with appropriate qualifications.
