    Hi,

    I’m wondering if anyone has been in a similar situation as I currently am, or may just have advice in general. I am currently in the process of fulfilling my 1 year of experience in order to attain licensure in MA.(Have 1500ish out of 2000 hours). I passed all sections of the exam and have 150+ hours.

    Due to circumstances in my family I will have to relocate to NY for the near future (at least the next 5-7 years). After reading NY’s policy on Licensure By Endorsement (Requires substantial equivalency which I have AND 4 years of work experience with your licensure) it looks like I will have to apply for initial licensure in NY even if I attain licensure in MA before I move.

    I will likely just transfer my scores to NY and work towards meeting the requirements for initial licensure there. Am I correct in understanding that the location of your work experience does not matter as long as you are working under a CPA who is properly licensed in their jurisdiction? I am concerned that my hours worked will not apply and I will have to work an additional year in NY to get NY licensure.

    If anyone has any insight I would much appreciate it.

    Experience was the worst part of the journey for me. You?
