Accountant Overview


Accountants are the professionals who examine and prepare financial records to ensure taxes are paid on-time and properly. In addition, these professionals access financial operations to help organizations run more efficiently. Typical duties include ensuring compliance with tax laws, preparation of tax returns, accounting systems inspection, organization of financial records and giving advice on how to reduce costs, increase revenues and enhance profits. Some Accountants specialize, such as in risk management or in specific industries like health care. Public Accountants perform a wide range of tax, accounting, auditing and consulting tasks. Clients include governments, corporations and individuals.

Accountant Education Requirements


Those seeking careers as Accountants must have a bachelor’s degree in accounting or closely related field. Some employers prefer candidates with a master’s degree in business administration with a concentration in accounting. Those with an associate degree in accounting may qualify for junior accounting positions and advance by demonstrating strong skills. Often, an internship is required for practical experience. To become a Certified Public Accountant, or CPA, candidates must pass the state exam. Many Accountants choose this designation to gain clients or to increase their job prospects.
