New Jersey Law & Ethics

FAQs

  • Does taking the New York Law & Ethics course satisfy the ethics requirement in New Jersey?
    No, you must take the New Jersey Law & Ethics course. 
  • How soon after licensure must a new CPA licensee take the New Jersey Law & Ethics course?
    New CPA licensees are required to take the New Jersey Law & Ethics course within six months of licensure. Furthermore, they are required to send a copy of the course completion certificate to the New Jersey State Board of Accountancy within 30 days of completing the course.
  • I’m also licensed in New York state. Does taking the New Jersey Law & Ethics course satisfy the ethics requirement in New York?
    The New Jersey Law & Ethics course no longer satisfies the ethics requirement in New York if your principal place of business is in New York. In January, the New York State Board of Public Accountancy voted and approved a change to the state’s ethics program guidelines. Previously, a CPA licensed in multiple jurisdictions could use an ethics course in another state to satisfy the ethics requirement in New York. Under the new rule, if your principal place of business is in New York state and you are licensed in New York, you MUST take a New York ethics course to satisfy your ethics requirement. However, CPAs licensed in multiple jurisdictions including New York, who have a principal place of business outside of New York, can satisfy New York’s ethics requirement by taking an ethics course in the CPA's primary state of practice. If you’ve already taken the four-hour New Jersey Law & Ethics course, the credits will satisfy your New Jersey ethics requirement and the credits for that course may be used toward your overall New York CPE credit requirement. If you have questions about your personal situation, you may call the New York State Board at 518-474-3817 (Choose Option #1, then extension #160).

All New Jersey CPA licensees are required to complete a four-credit course on New Jersey Law and Ethics provided by a sponsor approved by the State Board. The NJCPA Education Foundation is an approved sponsor. Below is a list of upcoming Ethics seminars and webinars. Click on the course title for more information and online registration.
