Accounting License Violations
Accountants who wish to practice professionally must first become licensed. The Texas State Board of Public Accountancy grants licenses to those who meet the standards of the profession and pass the proficiency exam. If a licensed accountant later violates the standards and practices of the board, he or she may be in danger of losing his or her license. The board can choose to take disciplinary action against the professional, which may include license suspension or revocation.
Examples of Violations
Accounting professionals are trusted to be transparent, precise, and honest about the work that they do for their companies or clients. If an accountant cannot be trusted to deliver correct numbers and to follow the law, he or she may be suspended from practice. Some examples of license violations that could cause an accountant to lose his or her license include:
- Accounting fraud
- Accounting negligence
- Criminal convictions for fraud, embezzlement, or theft
- Mental health issues
