Value of CPAs
Among the most trusted financial advisors, CPAs adhere to strict professional standards of conduct, which stress independence, integrity, objectivity, technical competence and adherence to professional standards.
Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) advise individuals, businesses, financial institutions, nonprofit organizations and government agencies on a wide range of financial and related matters.
People turn to CPAs for a wide range of assistance – everything from business advice to help with income tax preparation.
While all CPAs meet the same basic education, training and licensing requirements, not all provide the same range of services.
The MICPA has a referral service that allows you to be matched to a CPA with the expertise you need, right in your geographic region. Referrals from friends, neighbors and coworkers are a great way to find a CPA who meets your needs. Business people, especially those in your field can also help. So can lawyers and bankers. CPAs are also listed in phone directories.
