BDO Comment Letter - Exposure of Proposed Language to Section 14 of the Uniform Accountancy Act

October 2017

We understand that there has recently been disagreement about what may or may not be prohibited under Section 14 of the Uniform Accountancy Act as it relates to the use of management accounting designations by non-CPAs. We believe that the proposed phrase 'use an accounting designation that includes the word management' should be further developed to avoid any seeming contradiction with other sections of the Act.
