Released:
January 20, 2006
Updated:
February 19, 2012


"An Act relating to the practice of accounting; and providing for an effective date. "


 

HB 274 updates Alaska's statutory framework regulating the professional practice of accounting. This bill moves our statutes toward the standardized structure recommended in the model National Uniform Accountancy Act developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.

Adopting these changes will facilitate the practice of Alaska public accountants in other jurisdictions, ensure the qualifications of non-resident public accountants practicing in Alaska and aid the conduct of interstate commerce. These more contemporary statutes are important to keep Alaska competitive in today's dynamic international business environment and provide the greatest possible consumer protection for the public relying upon the work performed by Certified Public Accountants.

HB 274 increases the supervision and regulation of public accountants who provide auditing services; establishes a mechanism to grant temporary practice privileges to public accountants and public accounting firms licensed in other states; expands peer quality review requirements; and ensures that public accountants meet appropriate education and experience standards.

The Alaska Society of Certified Public Accountants and the Alaska Board of Public Accountancy support House Bill 274.
