The West Virginia Board of Accountancy filed a Notice of Public Comment with the West Virginia Secretary of State's Office on May 12, 2022. The Board has proposed a Legislative Rule change to its Series 1 Rule - Board of Accountancy Board Rules and Rules of Professional Conduct.
The Uniform CPA Examination, published by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) is being restructured with implementation beginning January 2024. In preparation for the examination restructuring, the proposed legislative rule change is to remove the required specific education subject area. This change allows for flexibility and less restriction for an individual preparing for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) examination. Other proposed changes consist of updating certain accounting and auditing services definitions, and changing the credit date for any test sections passed within the eighteen months from the actual date the candidate took that test section to the date of notification of the passing score results.
The Comment Period ends on Friday, July 1, 2022, at 5:00 pm. You may file your written comments with the Board at:
