The Indiana Board of Accountancy’s Professional Licensing Agency provides professionals the opportunity to update, renew, order or print any license. Consumers are able to search and verify licenses and digitally certify a license. The Board, however, does not provide CPA Exam scores, as the exam is administered by the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA).
Once licensed, Indiana CPAs can join the Indiana CPA Society, which represents professional CPAs and strives to enhance and improve the success, ethical standards and professionality of its members.
