Where CPAs Work

Business/Industry

Industry CPAs work for one company instead of many. They are responsible for developing, producing and analyzing data useful for making business decisions and for reporting to internal and external interested parties. Not only are they responsible for reporting on past operation, but also for interpreting results for management and forecasting future financial results and capital requirements. The types of titles and responsibilities are numerous due the variety of companies one could work for.
