Sure unless the "Accountant" is licensed & regulated by some governmental authority. It happens all the time. Generally, the only issue would arise if the "accountant" or "bookkeeper" is violating some state licensing provision, for example, in some states you can't use the word "Accountant" in your title, signs, service descriptions, advertising, phone listings or anywhere else unless you are licensed by the State you are operating in. For example, in Massachusetts you must be a CPA to call yourself an "Accountant". There are no such rules related to Bookkeepers, Financial Annalists, etc., as long as they don't use the word "Accountant".
