Recording financial transactions is the first part of and the foundation of the accounting process. Bookkeepers handle the recording part of the accounting process. Accountants handle all parts of the accounting process.
Are you a CPA?
Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) have sat for the CPA exams covering theory, practice, auditing, and law; worked for an established accounting firm for two years; and, acquired five hundred hours of auditing time to earn their certification. In addition, they are required to complete a certain number of hours of continuing education to maintain their license-- therefore they can charge a premium for their services that the typical freelance musician cannot afford.
We are not a CPA firm and do not hold the corresponding designation.
