CPA Mobility Background Information
What is Mobility?
Practice mobility for CPAs is the general ability of a licensee in good standing from a substantially equivalent state to gain practice privilege outside of their home state without getting an additional license in the state where they will be serving a client or an employer.
CPA Mobility Tool
The AICPA and National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) have developed a free online tool to help CPAs and accounting firms around the country understand the implications of CPA Mobility and answer the common question “Does Mobility apply to me?”
CPA Mobility Across the U.S.
A national effort is underway to adopt a uniform system that will allow licensed CPAs to provide services across state lines without being subject to unnecessary burdens that do not protect the public interest. A total of 52 jurisdictions have passed mobility laws and are now in the implementation and navigation phases.
