Since the license to practice accountancy is granted at the state level, a certified public accountant (CPA) licensed in one state has to obtain a new license if he or she moves to a different state. The NASBA has worked toward standardizing the state requirements for licensure so that CPAs will have their qualifications recognized in all states.
