What is a CPA?

What is a Certified Public Accountant?

A Certified Public Accountant (CPA) is a trusted financial advisor, maintaining the highest standards in personal and business financial services. They can serve as business advisers, financial decision makers, tax consultants, accounting consultants and more.

As one of the leading accounting franchises, we work closely with certified public assistants to offer the highest standards of accounting and tax services. Our accounting firm provides outstanding tax and accounting services to our clients because of our dedication to the three underlying principles of professionalism, responsiveness and quality.


CPAs Typically Offer these Services:

  • Tax & Financial Planning
  • Consulting Services
  • Assurance Services
  • Forensic Accounting
  • Information Technology Services
  • International Accounting
  • Environmental Accounting

What is the difference between a CPA and Accountant?

Every Certified Public Accountant (CPA) is an accountant, however not every accountant is a CPA. A CPA attends additional schooling (a bachelor’s degree in accounting minimum) and has met additional rigorous requirements before passing the CPA exam. CPA’s are also required to complete 40 hours of continuing education a year.

Rob is absolutely the best! He explained everything we didn't understand and more. We have never had a better experience with an otherwise stressful situation!

I have used Paramount to help review my 2017 taxes as well as help my relatives deal with an IRS questionnaire.   In both circumstances the staff here were very competent and friendly and I would definitely use them again.

Paramount Experience

Many people do not know how a professional tax and accounting firm differs from a bookkeeper or tax preparer. The main difference when working with a professional tax and accounting firm, such as Paramount, is that our firm utilizes the services of CPAs, EAs, and Attorneys who are distinguished from other finance professionals by stringent qualification and licensing requirements. Paramount has worked hard to create relationships to deliver the value that our clients expect. In fact, our goal is to be the No. 1 Tax Accounting firm in America. So when you ask yourself, "Where can I find Tax Accounting services near me?"... think no further than Paramount!

Upgrade to Tax & Accounting Firm

Whether you are filing personal taxes or you own a business, if you are not already using a professional tax and accounting firm, you have most likely already missed out on major tax benefits, deductions and credits. This is because a professional tax and accounting firm utilizes licensed professionals such as Certified Public Accountants (CPAs), EAs and Attorneys, who can not only advise individuals on personal financial matters but who are qualified to advise businesses, financial institutions, nonprofit organizations and government agencies on a wide range of financial topics. Our strict standards ensure that we understand the complicated tax laws and how to implement strategies that return the most benefits to individuals and businesses.
