Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
An accounting firm with non-certified accountants suffers combined effects of a small labor pool and increasing growth opportunities for the business. While adding non-CPAs keeps payroll expenses low and allows you to service more customers, its downside is increasing ethical challenges. bylaws require CPAs members to adhere to a code of ethics, this eliminates the ethics violations that non-CPA employees may commit.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
