NC Accountancy Law: Ethics, Principles, & Professional Responsibilities


North Carolina’s accountancy rules provide guidance for both new and experienced CPAs in obtaining and maintaining a CPA license, recognizing the responsibilities of the North Carolina State Board of CPA Examiners, and responding to third-party disputes regarding your CPA license. The NC rules also examine the CPA’s professional ethics and conduct requirements. Through actual cases and ethical situations, this eight-hour course will examine how these rules, statutes, and professional ethics are applied by practitioners in public accounting, industry, government, and education on a daily basis. This course will also examine ethical dilemmas you will encounter throughout your career. This course is required by the North Carolina State Board of CPA Examiners for those applying for an original license, a reciprocal license, or reinstatement of an inactive or suspended license. This course will also fulfill the state board’s annual two-hour ethics CPE requirement, and the additional six hours will help you meet your annual 40-hour CPE requirement.


* Participants will meet the requirement of 21 NCAC 8F.0504(a) “Within one year before applying for certification (original license or reciprocal license), all candidates for certification must complete an eight-hour CPE course on the North Carolina Statutes and Rules, including the Rules of Professional Ethics and Conduct contained therein” * This course may be credited toward the candidate’s annual CPE requirements


This course has been revised for 2021 to include discussion of recent ethical and professional issues in the accounting profession, including current legislation and regulations, independence issues, in-depth review of all North Carolina rules (including recent changes), and in-class discussion of basic ethical principles and their application through cases emphasizing integrity and objectivity

Who Should Attend

Any CPA interested in understanding current professional and ethical issues facing the accounting profession, including recent legislation, regulation, and NC Statutes and Rules of Professional Ethics and Conduct should attend, and all candidates applying for an NC certificate as a CPA, as well as reinstatement applicants, are required to complete this course
