AN ACT CONCERNING LICENSE RENEWAL REQUIREMENTS FOR CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS

SUMMARY: This act establishes continuing professional education reciprocity for certified public accountants (CPAs) whose principal place of business is not in Connecticut.

Prior law required all CPAs seeking license renewal to show that they completed 40 hours of continuing professional education per year since the last renewal or issuance. Under the act, out-of-state CPAs qualify for Connecticut license renewal if they certify in writing that they completed the continuing professional education requirements applicable in the state serving as their principal place of business.

EFFECTIVE DATE: July 1, 2018
