  • Financial Advisor- CPAs serve as financial advisors to individuals, helping them to manage their finances and to make informed financial decisions.

8. What is the ROI of CPA license? On an average, a CPA license holder garners 10-15% higher salary. Moreover, since this license opens up the global market opportunities, self-employed CPA licensees could expand the gamut of their services beyond national territories and earn a premium on their regular services.

9. Do I need to be a US citizen or resident to be eligible for CPA? No. US citizenship or residency is not necessarily required.

10. Does CPA exam differ in different US states/jurisdictions? CPA exam remains the same no matter where it's taken. However, every US state/jurisdiction has its own set of education and experience requirements that individuals must meet.

11. What are the general requirements to obtain a CPA license? In general, there are three main requirements:

  • Education- 120-150 hours of accounting credits + 150 semester hours of post-secondary education
  • Uniform CPA exam
  • Experience- 1-2 years of experience under CPA

12. Approximately how much money does it cost to take a CPA exam (including preparation, registration, test, travel etc.)? For an Indian, It will cost around Rs. 500k-600k

13. How much work experience is required to obtain CPA license? Many states require the candidate to have 1 – 2 year experience under a CPA. Many states/jurisdictions also accept non-public accounting experience (e.g., industry, government), although the number of years deemed acceptable are typically higher than for public accounting.

14. What is the difference between one-tier and two-tier system of US states/jurisdictions? Under one-tier system, candidates must pass the CPA exam and fulfill the experience requirements to obtain both the certificate and license. On the other hand, under two-tier system you can obtain the certificate upon passing the exam and then must fulfill the experience requirements to obtain the license to practice in public accounting. Because so many factors determine whether a state/jurisdiction is considered one- or two-tier, it is recommended that you contact your state board for interpretation.

15. What is needed to maintain a CPA license? 1. Continuing Professional Education (CPE)

  • Typically 40 hours per year

19. When can I take the exam? The CPA exam is offered quarterly in what is referred to as a “testing window.” The testing window is generally the first two months in a quarter for a calendar year. The third month is referred to as a “blackout month.” Each section may be taken separately, during one of the following testing windows:

  • January 1 through March 10
  • April 1 through May 31
  • July 1 through September 10
  • October 1 through December 10

21. Do I need to take exam of all 4 sections in the same testing window? No, you can choose to give different section exam in different testing windows in any order. Only thing that must be kept in mind is that you have to complete all the four parts within 18 months after passing any one of the parts. Otherwise your passing credits would be forfeited and you would have to pass all sections all over again. Moreover, you cannot take the same section more than once during any one testing window.
