Board of Certified Public Accountants

Reciprocal Certificate

Any certificate holder who provides accounting services as outlined in W.S. 33-3-109(c) from a Wyoming location must obtain and maintain an active Wyoming certificate. Chapter 3 of Board rules and regulations outlines the requirements for individual certificates.

W.S. 33-3-109 provides the authority to issue reciprocal certificates to those certified in other states when services are provided from a Wyoming location.

To determine if you qualify for practice privileges, please refer to Chapter 10 of Board rules and regulations. If you qualify for practice privileges, you are not required to obtain a reciprocal certificate to practice in Wyoming.
