Board’s Purpose

Our Purpose

Promote the dependability of financial and other information used by providers of capital when assessing the status and performance of those seeking financial resources.

To accomplish our purpose, the Agency is responsible for ensuring that credentialed persons are:

  • Initially qualified
  • Remain qualified
  • Perform competently and
  • Held publicly accountable for the quality of their professional services

Unlike most state agencies, the Board of Accountancy is not funded by public tax dollars. CPAs, CPA-Inactive certificateholders, CPA firms, non-licensee CPA firm owners, and CPA examination applicants pay administrative fees which cover all of the agency’s operating expenses.
