Here while talking about CPA, we mean the CPA US qualification provided by AICPA – as that is the most worldwide valued CPA designation in the business world.

A CPA US is a licensed accountant who has:

Passed a series of rigorous tests administered by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA)

  • Completed 150 hours of coursework
  • Worked at least one year in the accounting field under a licensed CPA.
  • While accountants can prepare detailed financial reports, audit the books of public companies, and prepare reports for tax purposes, only CPAs can legally sign tax returns and represent clients at tax audits or other matters by the IRS.

The CPA designation requires continual educational enhancement.

CPA exam is conducted by American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). NASBA represents the 50 State Board of Accountancy and 4 districts which determines the Exam eligibility of the candidates. Different states of the US have different sets of eligibility criteria and a CPA aspirant needs to be evaluated as eligible for a given state before writing for the exams from that state. The relevant State Board of Accountancy declares the Exam score. After passing the exam one needs to apply for the license from the respective State Board of Accountancy in case he wants to practise as a Chartered Accountant in the United States and some more first world countries.


You may send scanned copies of your educational documents to us for a basic evaluation guidance on your CPA eligibility before you go for an official evaluation by NASBA or similar onganisations recognised by the AICPA body.
