Certified Public Accountants

IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING CONTINUING EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS:

The Connecticut State Board of Accountancy resolved to extend the deadline for all Connecticut CPA license holders to complete their continuing professional education (CPE) requirement to December 31, 2020. This decision was made due to the effects of the ongoing crisis caused by COVID-19 pandemic.
 
Therefore, for the CPE year ending June 30, 2020, there is no need to request an extension, as all Connecticut licensees have been granted the extension.

The Department of Consumer Protection will no longer issue CPA wall certificates. A wall certificate can be obtained by contacting NASBA at www.nasbastore.org after approval of your certification.  All questions regarding wall certificates should be directed to NASBA at 1-888-925-5237.

Laws & Regulations*

*The regulations regarding Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) have been revised. Provisions already in statute have been removed. Also, Connecticut’s regulations are now more consistent with the Model Rules of the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy.

The main substantive changes to the regulations have to do with continuing professional education (CPE). CPAs may now record credits in fractions as small as one-sixth (10-minute) increments, and may earn credits via interactive self-study programs.
