Why not a CA?

Because I thought they were called "CPA"s out here, a colleague of mine said "You probably need a CPA" and I wanted to make the distinction between an accountant and someone who merely offers tax returns.

Out of interest, what is the difference then between a CPA and CA?

Wikipedia says:

"CPA is an acronym for Certified Practicing Accountant"

So, as long as they are qualified, I don't care whether they are practicing, quite good at it, have one leg or are semi retired.

CA = Chartered Accountant
CPA = Certified Practising Accountant.
