Jerry Catalano Interview The Best Accounting Practices for Entrepreneurs

When becoming an entrepreneur the one area that will guarantee if you will have success is your cash flow and hiring the right accountant to manage your profit and expenses is a crucial part of your new business venture.


Jerry Catalano discusses in the interview:

When you are a CPA, You can do certified audits.

Not everyone needs a certified audit.

Only small businesses that need a certified audit are from ones that the bank request for it.

Review opinion is lower than a certified audit. General accepted accounting principles are dictated by American certified accountants.

There are 4 different types of accountants:

1. CPA (Certified Public Accountant)

2. CFO (Certified Financial Officer)

3. Staff Accountants

4. Average Bookkeepers


Accounting Software’s:

3. Peachtree

Getting the numbers right to start with in the foundation is important.

Entrepreneurs should start off by getting trained in these software’s in the beginning.

Goal is to get the charter of accounts correct and numbers entered correctly.

Tax planning season starts on October 1st.
