CLA is here to support you on each step of your professional journey, and one of the major milestones is passing the CPA exam.
We’ve designed the myCPA@CLA program to aid and encourage you to pass the CPA exam early in your career.
CPA Exam Review Materials — Employees and committed hires receive review materials at no cost. Once CLA receives a signed offer letter for regular employment of 1,560 hours or more, and no later than the second anniversary date of employment, you are eligible to choose one of CLA's two review material options and to utilize CLA's billing arrangment.*
Exam fee reimbursement — If you pass all four sections of the exam by your fourth anniversary of employment, the firm will reimburse one application fee, up to two notice to schedule (NTS) fees, and one round of exam fees for the four sections of the CPA exam upon successful passing of all sections.
Time off — Up to four days of paid time off is available to sit for CPA exams.
Bonus — If you pass all sections of the CPA exam by your first anniversary of employment, you are eligible for a $2,000 bonus.
*Committed hires will be asked to sign a payback agreement to receive CPA Exam Review Materials before their start date.
CPA license — CLA covers the expense of obtaining the initial CPA license application, including ethics exams. The firm also pays the license renewal fees.
AICPA membership — CLA pays for the AICPA initial application and annual membership dues to support your continued involvement in the profession.
State CPA society membership — CLA covers membership fees for one state CPA society annually.
I already purchased CPA exam materials — CLA will not reimburse CPA exam review materials that were not purchased through CLA’s bill arrangement.
I already passed the CPA exam — Passing the CPA exam is a major milestone in your career. However, the firm does not reimburse CPA exam sections passed prior to a written offer of employment.
