California Board of Accountancy

Disciplinary Actions / License Restrictions

This list contains the following disciplinary actions and license restrictions:


  • Summaries, accusations and final decision orders for all decisions occurring since July 1, 1993 for licenses revoked or surrendered, and those licensees with license restrictions.

  • Summaries, accusations and final decision orders for all decisions taking effect on or after January 1, 2005 that resulted in a license being placed on probation. Prior to this date, for licenses that were placed on probation, the summaries, accusation and final decision orders were removed after seven years from the decision effective date. For details regarding these prior disciplinary actions, please contact the CBA Enforcement Division at the contact information below.

  • Currently effective Interim Suspension Orders (ISO) or Temporary Restraining Orders (TRO).

The CBA may revoke or suspend a license, or impose probation on the licensee for violation of applicable California Accountancy Act statutes or CBA regulations. The standard probationary terms, as well as case-specific probationary terms, are included in all cases of probation. The standard probationary terms are listed in the Manual of Disciplinary Guidelines and Model Disciplinary Orders.


In cases of serious threat of continued consumer harm, the CBA may suspend that licensee's ability to practice public accountancy, pending a hearing on that conduct through the use of an ISO or TRO.
