The Board non-CPA
At their June 2000 meeting, the Idaho State Board of Accountancy discussed specific components of the UAA proposal. Including:
150 Hour Education Requirement: The Board is considering requiring 150 Hours for licensure rather than exam. They would like to get the views of licensees and candidates.
Fourth Level of Reporting: The Board supports allowing licensees to issue non- SAARS financial reports, just as non-licensees can issue under current regulation.
Continuing Professional Education: The Board supports requiring 80 hours every two years with a 20 hour minimum per year. Currently Idaho requires a 30 hour minimum.
Commissions and Contingent Fees: The Board supports allowing them. The UAA says this form of compensation is only allowable for non-attest work from non-attest clients (client based). There is consideration to allow commissions and contingent fees for non-attest work even if attest work is done for the client in other engagements (engagement based). The Board is interested in licensees’ perspective on the different approaches. The Board has not yet endorsed one over the other.
The Committee plans to circulate drafts
the rules in early fall for public
legislation would be introduced during the 2001 Legislative Session with a July 1, 2001 enactment date.
We encourage you to relay your comments about the UAA to the Board office via e-mail, fax or mail.
