accountrain inc encourages an accountant to be involved at some stage of your accounting cycle. One of the biggest mistakes we come across is that a professional was not brought in or should have been brought in sooner. Chances are the fees you pay for a consult will be recuperated in some way based on the valuable information you learn. Professional accountants can ensure your policies and procedures are correct, your software is running smoothly and assist in some decisions that may otherwise be non-reversible. Knowing the difference between a CA, CGA & CMA (explained in the definitions) may help in deciding what level of expertise you need to assist you with your specific accounting needs.
