Effective July 1, 2014, the Georgia State Board of Accountancy was transitioned from operating as a licensing board within the Secretary of State’s Professional Licensing Board (PLB) Division to operating as an attached agency of the State Accounting Office.

Please note that business requests (e.g., firm license renewals, interstate exchange authorizations, emails, phone calls, etc.) that were submitted prior to or during the board’s transition period are being processed and, therefore, the information shown will not be current until that is accomplished.

You can reach the GSBA at its new location and via new contact information listed below. All inquiries are important to us and will be addressed as soon as possible.
