The NC State Board of CPA Examiners (Board) has developed an online portal to better serve North Carolina licensees, CPA license applicants, CPA Exam candidates, and CPA firms. At this time, the Board is focused on having all North Carolina CPAs create a user account.
The 2024 CPA firm registration renewal and peer review compliance reporting can be completed through the online portal only. Therefore, CPA firm supervisors must set up a user account to access the renewal. A firm administrator who is not a North Carolina CPA will not be able to set up an account using their own information; each account must be linked to a North Carolina CPA. The Board anticipates that the firm renewal will be available in early December. The Board staff will contact supervising CPAs when the renewal is available.
In addition, the 2024-2025 individual CPA license renewal will be part of the portal. All North Carolina CPAs must set up an account to be able to renew their individual CPA license; the Board encourages all CPAs to set up their accounts before February 1, 2024.
Please review the step-by-step instructions for creating an account before accessing the portal to set up your account.
If you need assistance, please contact the Licensing Staff.
