Did you know that an accountant is responsible for the systematic recording, reporting, and analysis of financial transactions of a business? The person in charge of accounting is known as an accountant, and this individual is typically required to follow a set of rules and regulations, such as the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. An Accountant is a person well versed in the arts of bookkeeping and payroll and accounting allows a company to analyze the financial performance of the business, and look at statistics such as net profit.

Certified Public Accountant is the statutory title of qualified accountants in the United States who have passed the Uniform Certified Public Accountant Examination and have met additional state education and experience requirements for membership in their respective State as a CPA. A licensed CPA is able to provide to the public attestation (including auditing) opinions on financial statements.

An Enrolled Agent is a person who has earned the privilege of representing taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service by either: passing a three part comprehensive IRS test covering individual and business tax returns, or through experience as a former IRS employee. Enrolled agent status is the highest credential the IRS awards. Individuals who obtain this elite status must adhere to ethical standards and complete 72 hours of continuing education courses every three years.

Enrolled agents, like attorneys and certified public accountants (CPAs), have unlimited practice rights. This means they are unrestricted as to which taxpayers they can represent, what types of tax matters they can handle, and which IRS offices they can represent clients before.
