The Utah Board of Accountancy will grant CPE Reciprocity to a non-resident licensee seeking renewal if the licensee has fulfilled the continuing education requirements in the most recently completed reporting period in the state in which his or her office is located. If the licensee’s Principal Place of Business state has no CPE requirements, the non-resident licensee must comply wit the CPE requirements set by the Utah Board. Non-resident licensees will still be required to fulfill the UT Ethics requirement, which must be Board approved and include a review of Utah’s laws and regulations.

Carry Credits: 40 hours maximum allowed to carry forward to subsequent reporting period.
