Accountancy Licensee Database
The ALD is a central repository of current licensee and firm information. It was conceptualized to assist boards of accountancy with their regulatory mission. Ideally, the database will continue to grow to include the current and accurate licensing information for individual accountants and firms in each of the 55 jurisdictions. ALD is hosted by NASBA and access to the system is free to state boards of accountancy.
With almost three quarters of the boards of accountancy already participating in the ALD and CPAverify, and commitment from nearly 100%, NASBA staff is preparing to help the final 12 join the ranks of those already live. Based on “State Board Profiles – June 2012,” a compilation of state board profile information provided to NASBA by the individual state boards, the estimated national total of “Persons Regulated” is approximately 732,329. That means, the 43 accountancy boards participating in the ALD represent 83% of the world’s CPA population (about 604,910 licensees). On CPAverify, the 38 participating boards make up about 79% of regulated CPAs (about 576,117 licensees).
