Prepared by: Regulated Industries Committee (RI)
The bill permits a nonresident Florida-licensed certified public accountant (CPA) to renew his or her license if the CPA has complied with the continuing education requirements in the state in which his or her office is located. However, a nonresident CPA must satisfy Florida’s ethics-related continuing education requirements. If the state in which the nonresident CPA’s office is located does not have continuing education requirements as a condition for license renewal, the nonresident CPA must comply with the continuing education requirements in Florida.
If approved by the Governor, these provisions take effect July 1, 2021.
