SCACPA is the only organization looking out for the CPA profession in South Carolina. Who better than your association to protect and promote the CPA Profession? This year we’ve expanded our advocacy efforts.
Along with federal tax conformity, we are actively monitoring state tax reform, sales tax on tax preparation services, occupational licensing reform, two separate audit rotation bills, and new financial literacy programs.
With the help of our Chapters we’ve created more personal interaction with legislators via legislative social events, and we’ve also enhanced our relationship tracking with updated software.
When hot button issues arise, or you need information quickly, you can be assured that SCACPA has you covered. At the onset of the COVID-19 crisis, SCACPA lobbied to have CPAs declared as essential businesses so members could continue to work and serve clients all over South Carolina. Our crisis communications plan was tested with Hurricane Florence and proved to be a true member benefit.
In 2019, SCACPA started the #WhyCPA campaign to promote the value of CPAs to local business owners and individuals. So far, the campaign received more than 20,000 impressions, and the campaign will continue to thrive.
