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.

Accountant Job Market


The employment of accountants is expected to grow 13 percent through 2022 according to career statistics. There are a number of factors fueling the demand. In response to the recent financial crises and business scandals, there are now stricter regulations and laws in the financial sector. The demand for accounting services will grow due to companies seeking to meet new standards. Globalization of business will lead to increased demand of accounting expertise related to acquisitions, international mergers and international trade. CPAs will have the best prospects. A similar position would be a Quickbooks Accountant.
