    PFS Pricing
    Please use the following for pricing guidelines when remitting payment:

    Credit Card

    For Initial Pricing:

    The standard initial pricing for the PFS credential is $360 unless you qualify for one of the exceptions listed below:

    • If the job code in your AICPA profile is “Government”, then the initial price is always $260. 
    • If you hold the ABV, CFF or CITP credential, then the initial price is $260 (unless category #3 below applies with a lower price)
    • If you are a member of the PFP Section, then you will receive a credit for a pro rata portion of your remaining unused annual PFP section membership fee. (causing the actual cost to be somewhere between the $360 standard price and $160 depending on the number of months remaining in your annual PFP section membership period)

    For Renewal Pricing:

    Credential renewal pricing is $360 for the first credential and $260 for each subsequent credential held. There is an exception:

    • If the job code in your AICPA profile is “Government”, then each credential has a renewal price of $260.

    If you hold multiple AICPA credentials, please contact us.

    If remitting payment by credit card, you may attach your application to an e-mail and send to with “PFS Application” in the subject line, or fax it to 800.326.5066.

    If you prefer to pay by check, your payment and application may be mailed to:

    AICPA – PFS Application
    220 Leigh Farm Road
    Durham, NC 27707

    It will be reviewed and processed, and you will receive notification of your application status shortly thereafter. In some cases, you may be asked to provide additional information to support your application. If you meet the requirements, your application will be approved. If your application is not approved, your fee will be refunded.
