Firm Licensure

Firm licensing

Any firm providing attest services or compilation services or financial statement preparation services to persons or entities located in Virginia must hold a Virginia firm CPA license.

The Virginia Board of Accountancy provides firms the information needed to become licensed in Virginia and how to annually renew the firm license. Information is available for firms located in Virginia and outside Virginia as well as how to communicate firm changes and how to remain Peer Review compliant.

Additionally, the VBOA provides a listing of all new Virginia firm licenses since 2011.

The VBOA encourages Virginia CPAs to serve their communities by donating their knowledge and financial expertise as volunteers. Consistent with the role of protecting the public and assisting CPAs, the VBOA has developed a resource for providing volunteer services as a Virginia CPA.

The VBOA hopes this information will clarify the ethical and legal considerations, including whether or not a firm license is required, of providing pro bono work to not-for-profits in an effort for CPAs to give back and pay it forward.
