CPA Review

Encourages Early Achievement of CPA License

Public audit and accounting professionals have a very visible and measurable way of showcasing their experience, knowledge, and technical acumen — by earning the designation, "Certified Public Accountant."

While KPMG attracts and hires the best and brightest new associates, it is vital that our new employees continue to strive higher, enhance their skills, and demonstrate their proficiency by earning their CPA. It's important to their careers, and to our clients.

With this in mind, KPMG has created a new "CPA Incentive Program" aimed at encouraging eligible employees in Audit, Tax, and Advisory to pass the CPA exam within their first two years of employment with KPMG (or the first two years of exam eligibility)* — with a greater incentive to pass the CPA exam in year one.

Program Highlights:

  • $5,000 award to Campus hire Associates joining KPMG with CPA exam passed, or who pass all parts of the CPA exam within 1st year of employment or CPA exam eligibility*, whichever is later
  • $3,000 award to Campus hire Associates who complete and pass the CPA exam during their second year of employment or CPA exam eligibility*, whichever is later

This new bonus program is one more effort by KPMG to not only recognize employees for their efforts in earning their CPA license but to also create a total rewards package that is a leader in the profession. Coupled with a 401k plan employer matching contribution of 25% up to the first 5% of employee base compensation contributed to the plan and the $5,000 credit enhancement to the KPMG Pension Plan for qualified employees, we believe that KPMG's total reward package, along with the numerous other Employer of Choice initiatives makes KPMG a great place to build your career.

* Exam eligibility is determined by each respective state based primarily on educational credits completed.
