Accountancy

Tennessee State Board of Accountancy

The Tennessee State Board of Accountancy protects the public interest by ensuring that persons professing special competence in accountancy or those offering assurance regarding financial statement presentation have demonstrated their qualifications to do so.

The Board's vision is to protect the public, enhance communications with licensees and proactively respond to the demands of today's changing world.

Firm Permits and CPA/PA licenses expiring on December 31, 2019 are available for renewal through core.tn.gov.

CPA/PA Renewals

Beginning with the 2019 renewal period for licenses expiring December 31, 2019, CPAs will be required to upload a summary of their CPE credits with their license renewal.  View details here.

Renewing CPAs may use the Board’s fillable reporting form or attach a list of their choosing (accepted formats include txt, gif, jpeg, jpg, png, doc, docx, rtf and pdf).    CPAs using NASBA's CPE Audit Service to track and store CPE records may generate a CPE summary from that site to attach to the license renewal.  Licenses issued in 2019 have no CPE requirement for the 2019 renewal.  Those new licensees should attach a statement or other document affirming their CPE exemption with the renewal application.

Please view the notification detailing the reporting requirement, including instructions for registration with the optional online Audit Service.

Firm Permit Renewals

During the online renewal application, firms must enter certain information about ownership and services offered.   Firms performing attest services will be required to upload a copy of their most recent peer review report and acceptance letter.

Firms who have not completed their first peer review may upload their peer review program enrollment letter to satisfy this requirement.

Board-approved State Ethics course

Effective January 1, 2018, there will be only one version of the state-specific ethics course (SSE) course approved by the Tennessee State Board of Accountancy (Board) available for licensees to complete to meet the SSE requirement for renewal.  The Board has partnered with the Tennessee Society of CPAs (TSCPAs) to help ensure that the most current and accurate state-specific content is included in the course material.
