US CPA course isn't Everybody's Cup of Tea

Do you love accounting to the moon and back?

Then go for the US CPA course.

Else do not  block your time  and money  just because  people have told you that  US CPA course is a hallmarked qualification in public accounting and will fetch you money and prestige in life. Passing the US CPA course is not your cup of tea if you believe in shortcuts of life.

2020 has shown us wave after wave of lay-offs and long lists of death counts. 

2020 has made us face the struggle of tough survival. 

If the  survivor in you is convinced that only the fittest will survive in the corporate jungle of the ‘new-normal’  era  and  the  school of conservative  thoughts is not going to help you much in the days to come, take a deep warm dive into CPA. 

True,  US CPA exam in India can now be written from India on a permanent basis  w.e.f January 1, 2021 because the pilot testing   made by AICPA and NASBA in India  in 2020 is successful. Students are excited and  more Indians have written their CPA exams in 2020 despite the harsh pandemic situations.

Apart from India, the other international testing locations for US CPA exam are:

  • Japan
  • Brazil
  • Bahrain
  • Lebanon
  • Kuwait
  • UAE
  • England
  • Scotland
  • Ireland
  • Germany

Today India is the finance and accounting hub for the world with Big 4 and MNCs having extensive global capability centers in India. And the CPA designation provides the much-needed global skills and credibility to Indian finance and accounting professionals.

Hence more and more Indian accounting professionals are writing the US CPA exam in India nowadays. And the news of the exam center being in India is definitely a huge savings of costs for Indians who used to fly to Dubai or to the US for 2/3 times in most cases for clearing the 4 exams of the US CPA course.

How to apply for the CPA Exam in India?

The application process is the same regardless of the location you take the US CPA exam. You must first apply through a U.S. jurisdiction, which will license you as a CPA in that state. This first step is necessary even for international CPAs, because it’s the individual U.S. states (or territories such as Puerto Rico) that license CPAs, not the federal government.

Choose your U.S. jurisdiction/state

If you don’t live in the U.S., it can be difficult to know which state to select for your CPA license. Each of the 55 jurisdictions (states) has its own Board of Accountancy eligibility requirements.

Some states have flexible or reduced education requirements or other elements that may make your international CPA Exam application easier. We’ve done some research to help you understand which states are best for international CPA applicants.

Request application materials from the jurisdiction board.

You can access all state Board of Accountancy websites as well as ask NASBA any questions you may have here.

Submit your application and fees.

You will submit your CPA Exam application and fees to NASBA’s CPA Examination Services division. NASBA processes these on behalf of each jurisdiction’s Board of Accountancy.

Once the board confirms your qualifications and issues an NTS for you, schedule your exam.

You will schedule your CPA Exam with Prometric, the organization that administers the CPA Exam for all locations worldwide.

NASBA also lays out information on jurisdictions, eligibility, fees, and scheduling as well as document requirements by country.

When can I take the CPA Exam?

Starting from November, 2020, write your exams on any work day throughout the year in the allocated prometrics.

Remember, you have 18 months to complete all four sections of the exam once you pass the first section. See more on how to set your CPA Exam schedule.
