Board Rule-Making 2020: Firm Licensing

After holding a public rule-making hearing on January 31, 2020, the Board amended the following rule:

  • WAC 4-30-112 Must a firm holding a license from another state apply and maintain a Washington state license to hold out and practice in Washington state?

The Board amended the rule to:

  • Rename the rule
  • Eliminate the firm licensing requirement for CPA firms that do not perform or offer attest or compilation services
  • Align the rule with the firm licensing requirements per Chapter 18.04 RCW, which were changed with the passage of HB 1208

The Board’s Rule Making Order (CR-103) filing is available:

The changes will take effect March 6, 2020.
