Canadian CA here - just found out today I passed the IQEX/Reg (yay!) which means I am ready to apply to a state.
A few deets that might help:
- working in audit in Canada for a big 4, so CPE (we get tons to meet the Canadian CA requirements) and experience requirements signoffs (even if it needs a US CPA to signoff we have some partners with that here) are not an issue
- I have a US SSN (worked in NY/NJ for a few months) so not an issue there either
- I dont intend to work in any of the states as a CPA yet - otherwise I'd obviously need the license in that state.
What state would you recommend?
A state with low CPE requirements and fees (in case i ever leave the big 4 and have to out of pocket it) would be ideal.
