How hard is the CPA exam? Really flippin’ hard. But it’s not the content or the volume of the material that makes it so difficult. It’s the relentless schedule. For 12-18 months you’ll be doing nothing but Work. Study. Sleep. Your social life will be nonexistent… and that’s truly the hard part.

Is it worth it? Unequivocally, yes. Passing the CPA will be one of the proudest moments of your life. Your career (and your wallet) will be more robust. And in the end your social circle may be smaller, but of higher quality.

Who are the best CPAs for startups? We think we are - with clients who raise over a billion dollars in funding every year, scores of acquisitions and early-stage tax experts (and CPAs) on staff, we know startup accounting, tax and finance in and out. 

Kruze Consulting is a leading accounting firm working with seed and venture funded Delaware C-Corps. Funded startups choose Kruze Consulting’s team of CPAs, bookkeepers, CFOs, former IRS tax auditors, and venture experts. In addition to running the books, Kruze does tax, finance, and HR.
