After receiving notification of successfully passing the PFS exam, please be sure to review the CPA/PFS Credential Application Kit to become familiar with qualifications necessary to meet the credential requirements. After reviewing the application kit, either apply online or mail the application to the AICPA.
Please use the following for pricing guidelines when remitting payment:
For Initial Pricing:
The standard initial pricing for the PFS credential is $370.
However, if you already hold the ABV, CFF, or CITP credentials, then the cost of the PFS is reduced to $210
And, if you are a member of the PFP Section when you obtain your PFS credential, then you will receive a credit against your normal PFS credential price for a pro rata portion of your remaining unused annual PFP section membership fee (causing your actual cost for that first year to range between $145 and $370).
For Renewal Pricing:
Credential renewal pricing is $370 for the first credential and $210 for each subsequent credential held.
If remitting initial payment by credit card, you may attach your application to an e-mail and send to PFS@aicpa.org 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.
