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.

CPE News and Information

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.

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

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.
