Licensees:

I hope this correspondence finds you all healthy and safe. The Board of Accountancy (Board) held a special meeting on March 24, 2020, to discuss the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the upcoming renewal season. Given the unprecedented circumstances individuals may face due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Board has made the following decisions:

  1. The renewal application date has not changed. The due date is June 30, 2020. Failure to renew by July 31, 2020, will result in a $100 late fee. If you fail to renew by August 31, 2020, your certificate will be involuntarily relinquished and you will no longer be authorized to practice public accountancy.
  2. The deadline for completing your continuing education has been extended by 90 days. The deadline for completing your continuing education for the 2019 reporting period is now September 30, 2020.

If you have completed your continuing education by the renewal deadline of June 30, 2020, you should submit your continuing education form at that time. Please keep in mind if you are using the extension to complete your continuing education hours for the 2019 reporting period, you cannot report those hours during the 2020 reporting period.  Licensees may also choose to complete all of their required continuing education hours via self-study.

If I can be any assistance during this continuously evolving time, or any time, please feel free to contact me.  

Wishing you all well,

Mandy Harlow

Executive Director
North Dakota Board of Accountancy
