COVID-19 Statement from the Board

With the current COVID-19 situation and the issuance of the statewide ‘Stay-home” Order from Governor Brad Little, the Board office will physically be closed for the duration of the Order.  Staff will be working remotely with the best way to communicate with us is via email at isba@isba.idaho.gov.  We will be checking this inbox consistently throughout the day.  If you have a question for a particular staff member, please see the ‘Contact Us” link on this website for email information.

If you are a licensee, we ask that you review the Order from Governor Little.  The link to the order can be found here.  Also, we have received many questions regarding the interpretation of the Order as to ‘essential’ versus ‘non-essential’ businesses. You can find clarification on this issue by reviewing the What are essential services and businesses? document. You can find the Order, the essential services and business document and other important COVID-19 updates at coronavirus.idaho.gov.

As pertinent information becomes available during the period of the Order, we will continue to work at updating our website.

Thank you for your understanding and compliance with Governor Little’s ‘Stay-home’ Order as we all continue to do what needs to be done to help stop the spread of the coronavirus.

 

EXAM CANDIDATES:

NASBA, AICPA, Prometric and the Idaho Board of Accountancy have been monitoring the COVID-19 crisis and have taken the following actions.

Prometric will close test centers in the United States and Canada for a period of 30 days, starting March 17, 2020. They anticipate re-opening test centers on April 16, 2020, however, please note that the specific date will depend on circumstances that are changing daily. Prometric has released a Special Notice from Prometric regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus). No action is required on the part of the candidate. Prometric will cancel scheduled appointments and clear the Notices to Schedule (NTS) for candidates to reschedule at their convenience.

If you have an existing appointment with Prometric during the closure period, you will receive email instructions on how to reschedule your appointment to a future date once it is safe to resume testing. No rescheduling fees will be applied.

The Idaho Board of Accountancy is working with NASBA to extend all NTS with expirations between April 1 – June 30, 2020, until September 30, 2020.  At this time, no action is required by candidates and there is no need to contact NASBA or the Idaho Board of Accountancy. Please monitor the NASBA website for updates on when the NTS extensions are completed.

The Board office will be giving consideration to credit extension on a case-by-case basis.

Given the current events surrounding COVID-19, ISBA will be working to address requests from applicants, licensees and firms as it relates to extensions for examination, licensing-related matters or peer review.

If you have questions regarding the CPA Exam, peer review or licensing impacted by COVID-19, please send an email to one of the addresses below.
