What is the difference between accountant and bookkeeper?

With Shajani, you have the best of both worlds. In addition to reviewing and assessing the financial statements, we take care of the monthly ledger management.
What is the difference between an accountant and a CPA (chartered professional accountants)?
All CPAs are accountants, but not all accountants are chartered professional accountants. Accountants monitor the finances of a business, an individual, keep records and issue financial statements.
