Running a small business is hard.

A local Certified Public Accountant (CPA) can help.

Did you know that a CPA is an accountant licensed in the state of South Carolina, and required to maintain current knowledge of the tax laws in the state? Not every accountant is a CPA, so it's important to know if yours has passed the strict requirements necessary for the license.

As a small business owner, you handle many of your own day-to-day responsibilities. Whether it is customer relations, human resources, financial planning, or marketing strategies, you wear several hats and juggle multiple projects.

Deciding which responsibilities to outsource can be tricky. You built your company. You know it inside and out. Delegating important financial responsibilities can be an unnerving decision.

While many of these daily tasks can be handled internally, there are instances when a CPA's guidance can help you make important decisions regarding taxes and investments. Delegating to a licensed accountant will give you peace of mind that you're on the right track.

At Marshall & Associates, a CPA firm in Columbia, SC, we know you need someone you can trust to manage your money. We can manage all financial aspects of your business, leaving you free to run the day-to-day operations.
