Qualifying Public Accounting Education and Experience Requirements for CPA Credentialing
Non-Resident Practice Privilege/Substantial Equivalency - Effective April 18, 2008, Minnesota no longer requires individuals who hold a valid CPA license in good standing from a substantially equivalent state and whose principal place of business is not in Minnesota to apply for a practice privilege license in Minnesota or notify the Board. (States which are not substantially equivalent include Colorado, Delaware, Florida, New Hampshire, Puerto Rico, Vermont and the Virgin Islands.) If your only valid license is from one of these states you must obtain from the NASBA National Qualification Appraisal Service, prior to performing services in Minnesota, verification that your individual CPA qualifications are substantially equivalent to Minnesota's requirements or you must apply for and obtain a Minnesota Certificate. Individuals currently holding Minnesota certificates who have their principal place of business in another state and do not provide professional services in Minnesota will either need to continue to renew their certificates annually or surrender their Minnesota certificates.
