Board of Accountancy

The Board of Accountancy is a seven member board created by the legislature whose members are appointed by Governor and Executive Council to administer the laws for this profession in the State of New Hampshire. The board’s mission is public protection. The board does this by: ensuring that applicants are qualified for licensure; setting standards for the profession by proposing statutes and adopting administrative rules; and, investigating complaints of unprofessional conduct, taking disciplinary action against licensees when necessary to protect the public. The Board performs its work with the assistance of the Office of Professional Licensure and Certification staff and the Administrative Prosecutions Unit of the Office of the Attorney General. Our website provides links to the laws governing this profession, as well as resources for applicants, licensees, consumers and employers.
