The Board of Accountancy maintains the official firm permit records for in-state and out-of-state accounting firms, Accounting Corporations and Professional Limited Liability Companies who practice public accounting in West Virginia. Sole proprietors who have not incorporated or organized their business as a PLLC are not required to register as a firm. Businesses in which two or more certified public accountants or public accountants hold an ownership or membership interest must make application for a firm permit.

This searchable database is provided as a service to allow the public to check the firm permit status of accounting firms who are registered to practice in West Virginia. While every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the information provided, occasionally erroneous information can occur. Therefore, the information obtained from this service cannot be considered an official endorsement of any licensee. If anyone requires an official verification, please contact the Board office in writing.

Any firm may request that an official verification be sent to another Board of Accountancy or third party. Search for your firm information below and follow the appropriate links to order the verification and pay the fee. Your order will be forwarded to the Board office, completed and mailed to the recipients you requested.

*With the implementation of mobility legislation and substantial equivalency practice privileges, out-of-state CPAs performing accounting services in West Virginia may not be required to secure a license. Those licensees from states whose exam and licensure requirements are considered substantially equivalent to West Virginia's requirements may perform accounting services in West Virginia if they are licensed to perform the same services in their state of practice. Use this link for a listing of substantially equivalent states https://www.nasba.org/licensure/substantialequivalency/. However, all the individual practitioners who are performing attest services for a client whose home office is in this State are required to secure an authorization to perform attest services. Licensees who are members of out-of-state firms who perform attest services for a client whose home office is in West Virginia are required to secure a firm permit and authorization to perform attest services. Please contact the board of Accountancy if you have questions.
