Missouri State-Specific Ethics

Missouri State-Specific Ethics

MOCPA is proud to offer a one-of-a-kind Missouri-specific regulatory ethics program, custom designed for Missouri CPAs. Just like other regulated professionals, each CPA licensee and CPA firm in Missouri are governed by 1) Missouri statute and 2) rules promulgated by the Missouri State Board of Accountancy (MOSBA). CPAs want to ensure that all regulatory boxes are checked, but at times it can be challenging just finding the information to stay on top of the cornerstones of CPA regulation in Missouri: individual license and CPA firm permit requirements! This course identifies some of the most important regulatory considerations that every CPA should understand to practice in Missouri.

New for 2020:

  • Update on spring legislative activity in Missouri
  • Breaking news on the COVID-19 impact on CPA firms and CPA exam candidates
  • New AICPA CPA exam modeling
  • Clarification on regulatory issues from Fall 2019
  • Fresh real-world examples and case studies
  • And more!

COVID-19 NOTE: All MOCPA Regulatory Ethics Courses will be planned as live virtual options first. MOCPA is closely monitoring health and safety guidelines for group gatherings, and will continue to assess in-person availability through the fall.
