The Missouri State Board of Accountancy, in conjunction with MOCPA, is seeking comments on proposed amendments to accountancy rule, which include that as of Jan. 1, 2020, a licensee shall complete a minimum of 40 CPE hours a year, including two hours of ethics. Beginning Jan. 1, 2021, licensees would be granted a 31-day grace period for any CPE shortage. Upon audit, if the state board disallows any of a licensee’s course hours, they would have 30 days to obtain qualifying CPE. In addition, the proposed rules include clarification on letting your license go inactive without triggering disciplinary proceedings. To comment on the proposed revisions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by July 30.
If you're looking for a career change, consider the Accounting Doctoral Scholars (ADS) program, which addresses the demand for accounting faculty with experience in the areas of audit and tax. The ADS program has transitioned over 130 CPAs from practice to the classroom by providing scholars with financial assistance, and the University of Missouri is one of the participating schools. The deadline to apply for this year's program is Sept. 6 for candidates who will begin Ph.D. programs in the fall of 2020.
