How you can become a CPA in NYC?

by Harry CPA Accountant
Becoming a CPA is not an easy task. Having a bachelor degree in commerce is not the only requirement to become a CPA. You need to appear and qualify the Uniform examination. National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) provides an optional evaluation. When you apply for the very first time for CPA examination, you get an advisory from NASBA that what lacking is seen in your qualification. EveryCPA in NYC has gone passed through this procedure and is now working as an independent body to manage accounting services in the country. Sometimes you will see that the CPAs are employed with some attorneys but normally less experienced CPAs or fresher work under attorneys to gain some experience. Later they independently handle the accounting services. New aspirants should also consider over the Candidate Bulletin for detailed information, they need to appear in CPA examination.

In case, you need to appear in the CPA exam through online mode, you need to create a login credential. It is quite possible that you are asked to provide your credit card details for completing the registration process.

You should also have the specific ID number allotted to you at the time of your previous examination. Keeping this detail in handy position will assist you to fill the examination form. Else you may be a victim of “session expired”. In case you forgot your user registration number, it can be easily retrieved from the system. Though, it is not easy to forget the same as you are willing to become a CPA in NYC.

This exam is conducted in four sections and every individual is required to clear all these sections within one and half year. Every candidate, who is appearing for the very first time is required to pay both fees. Application and examination fee. Even the candidates appearing for re-examination also required to deposit the fee on account of registration and examination too.
