Response to Exec. Order 17-04

The Nebraska State Board of Public Accountancy submits this report in response to the request by Governor Pete Ricketts (Executive Order 17-04) to review Board regulations to ensure they do not impose undue burdens and barriers on Nebraskans seeking to become Certified Public Accountants (CPAs).

The report linked below details Board regulations within the Nebraska Administrative Code and its benefits to the public. The section includes a summary of the regulatory burden and the costs of obtaining and maintaining an active permit to practice as a CPA in Nebraska. This section also discusses educational requirements, passage of the Uniform CPA examination, completing experience requirements and obtaining an active permit to practice as a CPA, as well as maintaining the permit through completing required continuing professional education. In addition to individual licensee requirements, CPA firms regularly must comply with an approved peer review process.
