The Public Accountancy Board issues licenses to both certified public accountants (CPAs) and CPA firms to practice public accountancy in New Mexico.
Public accountancy refers to providing financial services such as auditing; preparing financial statements; management and financial advice; consulting; preparing taxes; and tax advice. CPAs work both in private and public sectors.
The Board sets professional and educational standards for CPAs for obtaining new licenses and for renewing licenses each year, and ensures CPA firms report peer reviews of their performance. The Board also investigates complaints from the public against CPAs and/or CPA firms and takes appropriate disciplinary action when professional and ethical standards are violated.
