Have you passed the CPA exam and are ready to become a licensed CPA in Virginia? In order to become a licensed CPA, an applicant must first meet the 3 E’s of education, exam and experience.
The Virginia Board of Accountancy provides applicants the information needed to first become licensed and how to annually renew his or her license. Information is available for individuals licensed in another state or country or those interested in applying for the Active – CPE Exempt status.
Additionally, the VBOA provides a listing of all new Virginia licensees since 2011.

The VBOA encourages Virginia CPAs to serve their communities by donating their knowledge and financial expertise as volunteers. Consistent with the role of protecting the public and assisting CPAs, the VBOA has developed a resource for providing volunteer services as a Virginia CPA.
The VBOA hopes this information will clarify the ethical and legal considerations, including whether or not a firm license is required, of providing pro bono work to not-for-profits in an effort for CPAs to give back and pay it forward.
