NH Work Experience Requirement

    Hi everyone,

    I am hoping that somebody who are familiar with obtaining a CPA license in NH can help me out. I don’t have any audit experience but I pursuing a CPA license. I have >3 work experience as a staff accountant.

    I am looking for states that do not require audit work experience and I saw that NH is one. I found the following on New Hampshire Statutes, so I think I am fine. But I would really appreciate it if someone who went through the licensure process without audit experience could share their experience.

    Thanks in advance!!

    IX. The experience requirement shall consist of public accounting experience in providing one or more kinds of services involving the use of accounting or auditing skills, including the issuance of reports on financial statements, or one or more kinds of management advisory, financial advisory, or consulting services, or the preparation of tax returns or the furnishing of advice on tax matters, or the equivalent, all of which was under the direction of a licensee in any state in practice as a certified public accountant or as a public accountant, or in any state in employment as a staff accountant by a certified public accountant or anyone practicing public accounting, or a combination of either of such types of experience and for the following periods of time:

    (a) Until June 30, 2014, 2 years for a candidate with a 4-year college degree, or the equivalent, and one year for a candidate holding a master’s degree in accounting, taxation, finance, or business administration.
    (b) On or after July 1, 2014, one year.

    I didn't have zero audit experience, but didn't have as much. My experience was more varied. I had mostly tax, bookeeping, review, and comp under my belt. I think I had 300 audit hours in 3 years. As long as you are in public accounting and hit 1,500 billable hours a year you should be fine.
