New CPE Requirements Take Effect This Year

The Missouri State Board of Accountancy has amended accountancy rule in that as of Jan. 1, 2020, a licensee shall complete a minimum of 40 CPE hours a year, including two hours of ethics. Beginning Jan. 1, 2021, licensees in good standing will be granted a 60-day grace period (until March 1) for any CPE shortage. Upon audit, if the state board disallows any of a licensee's course hours, they will have 30 days to obtain qualifying CPE. In addition, the rules include clarification on using inactive status.
