AICPA and NASBA Create Online Mobility Tool


The AICPA and the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy have launched CPAmobility.org, an online tool that helps CPAs navigate the new practice privilege requirements that facilitate practice across state borders.

 

The website is a joint project that provides free information on mobility laws for all 50 states and five U.S. jurisdictions. For instance, CPAs can learn whether their existing home state registration is mobile and allows them to work in other jurisdictions without additional notice, or whether further paperwork is required. In most cases additional registration is no longer required because mobility statutes recognizing CPA licenses granted by other states and jurisdictions have been enacted in 48 of the 55 U.S. jurisdictions.

 

The site provides users licensing and registration requirements after they answer the following three questions:

 

  • Where is your principal place of business?
  • Where are you going to perform services (target state)?
  • What type of services will you perform?

 

CPAmobility.org also offers immediate access to the site through a mobile application for CPAs who are on the road or away from their offices.
