Just as a definition of a professional accountant:
The International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) describes a professional accountant as someone that meets the standards of a professional. These are defined as:
having skills, knowledge and expertise tested by examination and continuously developed in a structured and monitored context, being committed to the values of accuracy, honesty, integrity, objectivity, transparency and reliability, belonging to a recognized accountancy body upholding professional standards and approaches in the discipline of recording, analyzing, measuring, reporting, forecasting and giving advice in support of financial, management and strategic decisions and adding value for stakeholders and therefore being subject to the disciplinary powers of that body, and maintaining expertise through a commitment to ongoing continuing professional development.
