State Board of Accountancy

The State Board of Accountancy has five distinct program areas: licensing, continuing education, quality review, examination, regulation and discipline.
Monthly, after ensuring that all regulatory requirements have been met, the Board votes to accept or reject requests for initial certification, licenses, registrations and permits.  Yearly the Board renews currently held licenses, registrations and permits.
Permit holders, as a condition of renewal, must undergo a peer review to determine compliance with technical standards.  The results are reported to the Board for review and action.
All licensees must report 40 hours of continuing education each year.  Disclosure forms are received, reviewed and audited for compliance.
The board administers the uniform national CPA exam.  Certification requires fulfillment of education, exam and experience requirements.
Allegations of violations are received and investigated.  Formal hearing, or settlements may result in suspension, revocation, reprimand, probation or censure of a respondent’s Connecticut certificate, license or permit or the issuance of an Order of Immediate Discontinuance in the case of unauthorized practice and use of title.  Civil penalties of up to $50,000 may be imposed.
