Virginia’s Regulatory Landscape for CPAs 2022


The CPA designation carries a value to each CPA. While the value is most obvious through its positive impact on professional careers, the CPA also brings opportunities for a professional to serve in volunteer roles and obtain a valued position in society. The favored status of CPA brings an expectation of good judgment, integrity, quality of character and other positive attributes. Therefore, in order to maintain the value of our profession, CPAs seek to obtain and maintain the public’s trust in professionalism, judgment and skills. In large part, that is why an ethics course is required for all Virginia CPAs. These pages contain the foundation of what you need to know to maintain your license and make sound decisions while practicing every day.

We designed this course to help you navigate the many different rules, expectations and constraints any CPA should consider when making decisions on a daily basis.
