what is a cpa?
A CPA is licensed by a state to provide auditing services to the public. Many CPA firms also offer accounting, tax, litigation support, and other financial advisory services. To become licensed as a CPA, the requirements differ from state to state, although the passage of the Uniform Certified Public Accountant Examination is required by all states. This examination is designed and graded by the American Institute of Certified Public Accounts.
taking the test for the cpa
ICertified Public Accountant (CPA) is the constitutional 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 certification as a CPA. Individuals who have passed the Exam but have not either accomplished the required on-the-job experience or have previously met it but in the meantime have lapsed their continuing professional education are, in many states, allowable the designation "CPA Inactive" or a corresponding phrase. In most U.S. states only CPAs who are licensed are able to provide to the public evidence opinions on financial statements. The exceptions to this rule are Arizona, Kansas, North Carolina, and Michigan where the "CPA" designation and the practice of auditing are not restricted.
