Division of Certified Public Accounting
MISSION: To promote consumer protection by ensuring that certified public accountants and firms meet and adhere to the statutory requirements for licensure.
Within Florida's Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR), the division is responsible for the regulation of certified public accountants (CPAs) and accounting firms. The division processes applications to sit for the CPA license, original Florida licensure applications, licensure by endorsement applications, reactivation of a delinquent or inactive CPA license, temporary permit applications, accountancy firm licensure and continuing education reporting forms. In addition, the division provides administrative support to the Board of Accountancy. The Board consists of nine members. Seven members are CPAs and two who are consumer members. The board meets approximately 10 times a year at various locations throughout the state. Meetings are open to the public.
