North Carolina State Board of Certified Public Accountant Examiners

Update Your Address

Without contact information on file for each Exam candidate, licensee, and CPA firm, the Board is unable to disseminate vital information to those individuals and entities. 21 NCAC 08J .0107 requires that any change in mailing address, physical address, practice address, phone number, employment, email address, website address, etc.,  be submitted in writing (online, email, fax, or mail) to the Board within 30 days of the change.  Board staff is prohibited from accepting any address changes not made in writing. Address changes made with the NCACPA, AICPA, or other professional organizations do not affect the address information on file with the Board. The Board uses email to provide information to applicants, candidates, licensees, and CPA firms in a cost-effective, efficient manner. Therefore, the Board asks that applicants, candidates, licensees, and CPA firms provide the Board with a valid email address. The Board does not sell or rent the mailing addresses, phone numbers, or email addresses provided by applicants, candidates, licensees, and CPA firms.

Licensees

Licensees are encouraged to submit address changes online using the Board’s secure server.  To change an individual licensee’s address online, enter the licensee’s Social Security number, including dashes (XXX-XX-XXXX), and the licensee’s North Carolina CPA certificate number. If you do not know the individual’s CPA certificate number, it may be retrieved from the Licensee Search section of this website. Address changes submitted online are updated in real time. To verify that the address change was accepted, check the individual’s record in the Licensee Search.

NOTE:  If a licensee prefers that his or her  home address and telephone number not appear on the Board’s website, he or she must  designate his or her practice address and telephone number as the preferred  mailing address.
