To become a certified public accountant in North Carolina, according to the state’s CPA governing board, the North Carolina State Board of Certified Public Accountant Examiners, applicants must complete a class on the North Carolina Accountancy Statutes and Rules.

Salary

The annual average wage of accountants and auditors in North Carolina is $66,770. The North Carolina area — including Columbus, Harnett, Lenoir, Moore, Sampson, Vance, and several other counties — ranks among the top five of nonmetropolitan areas in the country with the highest employment for accountants. Employment for this occupation is predicted to expand through 2020 because of changes in financial regulations and companies needing to be more accountable with their finances. Those with professional recognitions, such as being a CPA, have the best job prospects.

CPA Licensing in North Carolina

Besides passing all portions of the CPA Exam and taking a course on the North Carolina Accountancy Statutes and Rules within one year of applying for certification, applicants in the state must meet educational requirements and have one year of experience in the public accountancy under the direct supervision of a licensed CPA. Certificates must be renewed annually. Educational requirements for becoming a CPA are as follows:

  • Must have completed 150 semester hours of education
  • Must have completed 24 semester hours of coursework with three-credit-hour courses in eight of these 10 subject areas: communications, computer technology, economics, ethics, finance, humanities/social science, international environment, law, management, and statistics
  • Must have completed a bachelor’s degree or higher with a concentration in accounting; those with master’s or advanced degrees in accounting, tax law, economics, finance, business administration, or a law degree from an accredited program have fulfilled the hour requirements

Continuing Education Requirements

Certificates must be renewed annually. Active CPAs in North Carolina must complete 40 hours of continuing professional education each year, with at least two hours of ethics in regulatory or behavioral professional ethics or conduct. If a person completes more than 40 hours in one year, the extra hours up to 20 hours can be rolled over into the next year. Courses must meet the requirements of the Board’s rules on continuing education, must be offered by a registered CPE sponsor, and must increase the professional competency of the CPA.
