Part of the Virginia Board of Accountancy’s mission is to protect the citizens of the Commonwealth of Virginia through ensuring certified public accountants and certified public accounting firms comply with the VBOA’s regulations and the Code of Virginia.
The VBOA upholds this mission through the investigation of potential violations and complaints received against Virginia licensed CPAs and CPA firms. The Board also has jurisdiction to investigate matters involving non-licensees for using the CPA title and the performance of services restricted to licensed CPAs or CPA firms.
Enforcement matters can originate from the VBOA itself, the public, including anonymous complaints, or a past or current client. They can also come from local, state and federal agencies. Complaints need to be made in writing and can be submitted online through the VBOA website at https://boa.virginia.gov/consumers/file-a-complaint.
