In this blog post we answer a question frequently received by our CPA PEP Admissions team.

If you are preparing to go to membership, you need to ensure that you are in active good standing with CPAWSB, including completing annual re-enrollment and paying dues for the academic year. If you have completed all components of CPA certification: Education, Examination, and Experience you can submit a membership application directly to your CPA provincial body. 

Once you have been accepted to membership, the provincial body will notify CPAWSB and your candidate record will be closed and a refund of annual dues will be calculated based on your date of membership as provided by your CPA provincial body as follows: 
Date of Membership Refund of dues paid to CPAWSB
April 1 to June 30 100%
July 1 to September 30 65%
October 1 to December 31 35%
January 1 to March 31 No refund

CPAWSB and the Western provincial CPA bodies have agreed upon a harmonized fee structure for candidates moving to membership, based on when a membership application is approved. 

Please be aware the refund will be sent to the original method of payment, and it may take up to 45 days to receive the refund. 

If you have any questions regarding your membership application, please contact your CPA provincial body directly.
