CPA-New York

FunCPE is a registered New York CPE Sponsor

FunCPE is a registered CPE Provider with the New York State Board of Accountancy (Sponsor # 002025). The following overview is from the NY State Education Department Office of the Professions. For more detailed information, we recommend that CPAs verify all information with the New York State Board of Accounting.

Who is subject to the NY CPE requirements?

CPE requirement includes licensed CPAs and PAs in not only public accounting, but also private industry, government, not-for-profit and education.

For those professionals not performing any type of accounting, tax, financial or management advisory work or those who work outside the state can request an exemption from mandatory CPE requirements.

State specific ethics CPE requirements

Will the FunCPE Ethics for Enrolled Agents course meet the NY CPE requirements for CPAs?
No, although our course is accepted by the IRS Office of Professional Responsibility for EA ethics, it is not approved by any state board for CPAs specifically, which is required by the NYSBPA.

From the MCE (Mandatory Continuing Education) Questions and Answers page:
How do I know if the ethics course I want to take will meet the New York requirement?

To be acceptable, the ethics course must focus on professional ethics. New York State will not accept behavioral ethics as a substitute for professional ethics. If you are taking any New York State-specific ethics course then the course provider must be registered with the New York State Education Department to deliver NYS ethics CPE.

If you take a non-New York State-specific ethics course, then the provider must be approved to provide ethics by the Board of Accountancy of the jurisdiction in which the course is given.

For further clarification of the CPE rules for NY CPA s and PA s, please contact the NY State Board of Public Accountancy.
