Firm Billing Program

Firm Billing Invoicing Program

Become one of the 250+ firms in California that are part of CalCPA’s Firm Billing Program: rather than processing multiple individual membership dues invoices for each of your employees, get just one invoice. You and your employees will no longer be burdened with reminders, invoices or reimbursement forms.

Participating is easy! You can enroll in our Firm Billing Program anytime of the year.

Here's how the program works:

  • Your firm designates an employee to serve as their CalCPA Dues Contact (typically a firm administrator, human resource professional, office manager or partner).
  • In mid-January, the Dues Contact is emailed a firm roster based on CalCPA internal data to review and update.
  • By mid-February, the Dues Contact returns the updated roster to CalCPA.
  • In mid-March:
    • The Dues Contact is emailed:
      • A single firm bill with an itemized dues balance for each CalCPA member working at the firm (organized by office, if applicable) and total balance due.
      • A list of CalCPA members not included on the bill because they do not owe membership dues (free candidates, life members, recent joins.
    • Each of your employees who owe membership dues receives an email explaining that they will not receive an annual membership dues invoice from CalCPA because your firm is participating in our firm billing program.
  • Your firm remits payment by May 1.
  • Once payment is received and processed:
    • CalCPA emails the Dues Contact a payment receipt itemized by member.
    • Members are emailed letting him or her know that their dues have been paid.
