Board of Accountancy
Objective and Function
The primary objective of the Delaware Board of Accountancy is to protect the general public from incompetent accounting services and practices which tend to reduce competition or fix prices for accounting services. The Board must also maintain standards of professional competence and service delivery. To meet these objectives, the Board
- develops standards for professional competency
- promulgates rules and regulations
- adjudicates complaints against professionals and, when necessary, imposes disciplinary sanctions.
The Board issues permits to practice to public accountants, certified public accountants, and accounting firms and issues certified public accountant certificates.
The Board's statutory authority is in 24 Del. C., Chapter 1.
The Board meets the third Wednesday of each month at 9:00 a.m., with the exception of March and December. All meetings are open to the general public and are held in the Cannon Building, 861 Silver Lake Boulevard, in Dover.
To ensure that business (such as a license application) is on the agenda for the Board's consideration at its next meeting, submit all documentation to the Board office no later than 4:30 PM ten full working days before the meeting date.
