Only licensed CPAs or LPAs may practice public accountancy in the United States. Iowa’s Accountancy Board is the only agency able to revoke a license to practice in the State of Iowa. This site provides information about licensing and discipline.
Board members, both drawn from the accounting profession and others, are appointed to serve by the Governor. State boards of accountancy have disciplinary and enforcement powers over licensees and operate on a complaint-based system.
To become licensed there are education, examination and experience components. To maintain a CPA license, continuing education requirements also must be fulfilled.
