New eLicense System

The Accountancy Board of Ohio is joining other Ohio licensing boards in transitioning to a new State online eLicense Ohio system that launched on April 23, 2018.  Security Codes have been emailed.

Applications for CPA certification and firm registration are now available online.

All applications and renewals will now be completed online.  The Board will no longer be accepting paper checks once the new eLicense system is active.   FAQs
