Hoping someone can clarify this for me. On the Certificate of General Experience form there is a paragraph on the first page that says
“The licensed CPA holding a valid license to practice public accounting who supervises the applicant’s performance of services provided. A second person with a higher level of responsibility in the nonpublic accounting business must also verify the applicant’s experience. If the licensee who supervises the applicant is the owner of the business, no second signature is required.”
I need some clarification on the first sentence. Does it matter whether or not my supervisor have practiced/is practicing public accounting or whether they have a attest/general license?
I have always been informed that to have my general accounting experience signed off my supervisor only needs to be holding an active CPA license.
