Part of the experience review is to make sure you supervising CPA had a valid license for the period they are vouching for your experience.
From what I was told this was handled by a separate department. They need to verify your supervisor was in good standing, no lapses in license, etc.
It's all just part of the process. At least they said experience review and not education review. I'd call again in another 4 weeks to make sure there are no issues.January 13, 2019 at 12:17 pm #2162452
Update on timeline
I passed in June 2018.
Information was sent to state sometime in July
Followed up early October to see what was going on and found out that NASBA never forwarded my documents so called NASBA to do so
10/16 state confirmed having evertyhing
11/16 information sent to the board
Now just waiting for my name to be posted.January 30, 2019 at 8:35 am #2188534
Update on timeline:
Application mailed and received by NYS: 10/9/2018
Application sent to Board: 11/26/2018
Was told the processing time was around 16 weeks…
License No. on Board Website: 1/28/2019
Do I need to submit form 2? I met the 150 requirement prior to sitting for the exam.January 31, 2019 at 10:39 am #2190103
Form 2 – Certification of Professional Education- Submit this form to your college(s) if your education for the 150 requirement was not approved prior to sitting for the exam by NASBA.
I would say no, probably not, but NASBA needs to send your education along to NYS. Sometimes they fail to do that resulting in a delay, so stay on top of it.February 12, 2019 at 9:05 am #2212702
12/12/18 – Docs with Board
2/11/19 – Board ApprovedFebruary 12, 2019 at 11:17 am #2212876
How did they notify you? My information was sent to the board the day after yours.
ThanksFebruary 14, 2019 at 8:14 pm #2216608
Hey guys, I have a quick question in regards to experience verification for NY. Do you know if a retired (old partner of the firm who no longer works now at all) can fill the experience form? Also, is it ok if the experience is before starting the cpa exams? Thank you.February 15, 2019 at 10:00 am #2217088
My understanding is that they have to be actively licensed in the state they are supervising you during the time period they are vouching for your experience.
They also need to be employed in the same business/agency/organization.
If the partner was actively working at the time, and was actively licensed, I think it should not be a problem, assuming its not a long long time ago.
Some states have rules about how far back the work experience can be, but I do not believe NY has any such limitation.
You can have him send in the Form 4B now, and they should add it to your file, assuming you have already filed a Form 1 as well.February 26, 2019 at 8:48 am #2232981
I called in today and they said they forwarded to the board and the timeline is now 16 weeks. is it really that long? or they just say so? does it depend on the time of the year? I see on posts that for some it took approximately 8-10 weeks.February 26, 2019 at 11:35 am #2233449
I was told it would take 16 weeks also, but in reality it took 2 months not 4. I think they're giving themselves a little extra cushion in case it takes longer to get through all of the applications.
I think it took me close to 20 during 2017.
I would anticipate the full 16 weeks and maybe you'll get lucky.
It depends on the time or year and how many people passed/how many staff have vacations, etc.
Supply and demand like anything else.February 26, 2019 at 1:34 pm #2233773
You made it this far. Sit back, relax. Maybe set up some interviews for a new gig that requires CPA. Keep your eye on the job markets and be patient. Congrats! You will be licensed soon. Call them at the 4 week mark and then 8 week mark for status.February 27, 2019 at 10:39 am #2235231
Thanks for your input! Either way, I gotta wait until April because turning then 21, which is a requirement in NY. But they said I can apply and they sent to the board because it will take that long minimum. Is there a way to check where they are upto? I see on previous posts stating which date the board is on.February 27, 2019 at 10:41 am #2235240
There is no way to check the processing date they are on except to email/call them, or if other people going through the struggle post their timelines here as they are approved.February 27, 2019 at 10:50 am #2235261
Ok, thanks! I guess I'll sit back and check in.February 27, 2019 at 7:25 pm #2236089
Please forgive me if this has been asked before, but how long does it generally take the NY state board to approve the additional 30 credits outside of the original required 120 to sit? I need to send in my additional 30 credits from 3 separate universities. Hoping this isn't too much of a hassle. Any advice is appreciated!February 28, 2019 at 8:05 am #2237346
Full application was received: 11/26/18
Application forwarded to the board: 12/13/18
License number on the site: 2/27/19
Hope this helps!February 28, 2019 at 10:27 am #2237694
@CPA-A-RON thanks for your update! congrats to you!! looks like takes around 10 weeks for the board to approve. sounds goodMarch 4, 2019 at 8:35 am #2247201
As of today, they are on applications submitted to the board on 1/14/19!
@rocaudit, thanks for the update. does this mean they are now issuing licenses for the ones submitted 1/14?March 4, 2019 at 9:53 am #2247408
how does it work with the license? do i actually get a physical license or they just issue my license numberMarch 4, 2019 at 10:17 am #2247468
You will get a license number and then a certificate will be mailed to you.March 11, 2019 at 10:07 am #2260197
anyone called in recently?March 11, 2019 at 10:32 am #2260245
I called 3/4 they told me my application had been forwarded on 2/25March 12, 2019 at 10:45 am #2261991
Mine was forwarded on the 26th so I guess were in the same boat. they didnt say where the board is upto?March 12, 2019 at 2:11 pm #2262288
As of yesterday, they told me the board approved mine (YAY!) and mine was sent to them on 2/7… they did say that now it was being sent to “Processing Unit 3” for a final review? and that it could take a few more weeks before i get my certificate in the mail *sigh*
Interesting. Mine was forwarded to the board on 1/18/19, I wonder what my status is. Anyone know how long after board approval it takes for your name to appear on the website?March 13, 2019 at 9:34 am #2263245
Question is once the board approves you they issue a license number already? or only when they mail the certificate?March 13, 2019 at 10:27 am #2263293
License # is posted to NYS website before you receive your certificate.AuthorPostsViewing 30 posts - 871 through 900 (of 944 total)
