Recently got my CPA license in August & considering leaving public accounting for Industry. Should I expect my new role to pay for my CPA license renewals/AICPA membership/CPE classes? These things add up &I feel like should be considered when transitioning. Thoughts?

Also if your new company is getting services from a decent size firm, you can ask to be included in their cpe webinars and such.

Don’t even have to ask. You just sign up for all the big firms webcast emails

Likely if it’s a large company that is hiring you into the finance function and qualifications are listed as a requirement of the job spec.

There are lots of free CPE courses online these days and most big companies offer some sort of training that likely meets all your non accounting CPE.

I have never asked to be reimbursed for an AICPA membership. However both companies I have worked for in industry reimbursed me for license renewal and CPE fees.

Most of my CPE is free. The big 4 publish their cpe for free, as does BDO and GT. Also cpaacademy.org is good too.

Definitely didn’t know this since I work for a smaller alliance firm, thank you!

My industry job pays for my CPA renewals, CPE subscription, and has offered AICPA membership (although I've never understood the benefit of AICPA). I also get a lot of free CPE, but I like being able to pick the topics, which is why I asked them for a subscription.

Before I stayed in public, I interviewed at a variety of small and larger private industry places and I always asked what their position/policy was on continuing ed and CPE as well as renewals. Most of the positions preferred the CPA as qualification so my opinion is it would be expected but always good to ask. As the post above says there are a lot of free courses out there for CPE.

AICPA membership is optional not required so that will most likely not get paid out

helpful

Since you get that now, you should at least ask about it. If you're moving into a position that needs a CPA, then they probably will.

helpful

If job description says "CPA required" or "CPA preferred" then yes, more likely than not they will reimburse licensing fees and CPE.

helpful

My last company paid for CPE but not the license fees

helpful

Deloitte reimburses for CPA license renewal and AICPA membership which is required by the firm.

So, I’m a 50 year old female who recently fell in love with K-pop (Korean pop music). Something about it makes me feel so happy and unencumbered. I think it reminds of those times when I listened to pop music as a youngster and didn’t understand what the songs were about - there’s no message (that I understand), no cursing, no angst, no highly suggestive lyrics, etc. - just lively, happy pop-py voices. And the dancing is awesome.
