   New Ohio eLicense System - Coming Soon   

This spring, the Accountancy Board of Ohio (Board) will transition to a new licensing and renewal website.  The new eLicense system operates in a secure web-based environment and will eliminate the need for paper applications and payments via personal checks.  The system will provide confirmation of fee payments and application submissions and will improve the ability of the Board to communicate with and guide you through the licensure and renewal process.

The Board will move to the new system on April 23, 2018.

Soon you will receive eLicense login information (including a security code) from the Board.  When you login to eLicense for the first time, you will be asked to enter the following information:   Email Address (the one on file with the Board), Security Code, Social Security Number and Date of Birth.  


The Board no longer issues wallet cards.  The current status of an Ohio licensee, or firm, is available online via the Ohio eLicense Center.  This service is available 24 hours a day -  7 days a week.
