DBPR Bottom Line: Fast Facts for Florida Business Leaders

February 17, 2012

Dear Friends,

DBPR and the Florida Institute of Certified Public Accountants (FICPA) recently announced a partnership through social media to raise awareness of unlicensed public accounting activity. This effort is part of our annual campaign to combat unlicensed activity by encouraging consumers to hire only licensed professionals throughout Florida.

Every day, thousands of Florida-licensed CPAs work to serve their clients throughout the state, and having a license to practice is important. A state license means the individuals are proficient in their profession and that they have agreed to abide by the standards outlined by Florida law.

DBPR and the FICPA are dedicated to protecting the safety of consumers' financial information and promoting sound business practices. This campaign helps spread the word to do just that. Please join us in our efforts to stop unlicensed activity and help us continue making Florida an incredible place to do business.

To report unlicensed activity, please call the DBPR unlicensed activity hotline at (866) 532-1440, or email cpa.complaints@dbpr.state.fl.us. You may also participate in our social media outreach on Twitter by following @FloridaDBPR and @FICPA and retweeting CPA messages with the #licensedFLcpa tag.

Sincerely,

Ken Lawson
