79 — What is the difference between a CPA and an accountant?

CPA may refer to Certified Public Accountants (USA) or Chartered Professional Accountants (international). 

Certified Public Accountants (CPAs)

Primarily associated with the United States, Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) are licensed accountants who have met specific education and experience requirements, passing the Uniform CPA Exam. CPAs in the U.S. adhere to the regulations set by individual state boards of accountancy, with variations in licensing requirements and regulations across states. The CPA designation is recognized in the United States, and CPAs may specialize in taxation, auditing, forensic accounting, or consulting.

Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA)

Recognized internationally, the CPA designation is used in many countries, including Canada, Australia, and other nations. Each country's CPA institute operates independently but may have reciprocity agreements with others. The regulatory framework for Chartered Professional Accountants varies by country. For example, the CPA designation in Canada is governed by the Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA Canada) and its provincial bodies. CPAs outside the U.S. may follow a unified CPA designation, combining various accounting designations under one umbrella. This designation signifies a commitment to a high professional ethics and competency standard.  

In summary, while Certified Public Accountants and Chartered Professional Accountants are highly qualified accounting professionals, the key difference lies in their geographical focus and the specific regulatory bodies governing their qualifications. Certified Public Accountants are primarily associated with the United States, while the CPA designation is used in various countries outside the U.S., each with its own regulatory framework. All CPAs are accountants, but not all accountants are CPAs.
