Peer Review Fees

Peer Review annual fees are billed to all firms enrolled in the peer review program who perform engagements subject to peer review. If a firm is in public accounting but does not perform attest and/or compilation engagements, no fee is required. The Peer Review Program is a self-supporting program. 

The evaluation fee is billed once every three years at the conclusion of the review.
