326A.10 UNLAWFUL ACTS.

(a) Only a licensee and individuals who have been granted practice privileges
under section 326A.14 may issue a report on financial statements of any person, firm,
organization, or governmental unit that results from providing attest services, or offer to
render or render any attest service. Only a certified public accountant, an individual who
has been granted practice privileges under section 326A.14, a CPA firm, or, to the extent
permitted by board rule, a person registered under section 326A.06, paragraph (b), may
issue a report on financial statements of any person, firm, organization, or governmental
unit that results from providing compilation services or offer to render or render any
compilation service. These restrictions do not prohibit any act of a public official or
public employee in the performance of that person's duties or prohibit the performance
by any nonlicensee of other services involving the use of accounting skills, including
the preparation of tax returns, management advisory services, and the preparation of
financial statements without the issuance of reports on them. Nonlicensees may prepare
financial statements and issue nonattest transmittals or information on them which do not
purport to be in compliance with the Statements on Standards for Accounting and Review
Services (SSARS). Nonlicensees registered under section 326A.06, paragraph (b), may,
to the extent permitted by board rule, prepare financial statements and issue nonattest
transmittals or information on them.

(b) Licensees and individuals who have been granted practice privileges under
section 326A.14 performing attest or compilation services must provide those services in
accordance with professional standards. To the extent permitted by board rule, registered
accounting practitioners performing compilation services must provide those services in
accordance with standards specified in board rule.

(c) A person who does not hold a valid certificate issued under section 326A.04
or a practice privilege granted under section 326A.14 shall not use or assume the title
"certified public accountant," the abbreviation "CPA," or any other title, designation,
words, letters, abbreviation, sign, card, or device tending to indicate that the person is a
certified public accountant.

(d) A firm shall not provide attest services or assume or use the title "certified public
accountants," the abbreviation "CPA's," or any other title, designation, words, letters,
abbreviation, sign, card, or device tending to indicate that the firm is a CPA firm unless
(1) the firm has complied with section 326A.05, and (2) ownership of the firm is in
accordance with this chapter and rules adopted by the board.

(e) A person or firm that does not hold a valid certificate or permit issued under
section 326A.04 or 326A.05 or has not otherwise complied with section 326A.04 or
326A.05 as required in this chapter shall not assume or use the title "certified accountant,"
"chartered accountant," "enrolled accountant," "licensed accountant," "registered
accountant," "accredited accountant," "accounting practitioner," "public accountant,"
"licensed public accountant," or any other title or designation likely to be confused
with the title "certified public accountant," or use any of the abbreviations "CA," "LA,"
"RA," "AA," "PA," "AP," "LPA," or similar abbreviation likely to be confused with the
abbreviation "CPA." The title "enrolled agent" or "EA" may only be used by individuals
so designated by the Internal Revenue Service.

(f) Persons registered under section 326A.06, paragraph (b), may use the title
"registered accounting practitioner" or the abbreviation "RAP." A person who does not
hold a valid registration under section 326A.06, paragraph (b), shall not assume or use
such title or abbreviation.

(g) Except to the extent permitted in paragraph (a), nonlicensees may not use
language in any statement relating to the financial affairs of a person or entity that is
conventionally used by licensees in reports on financial statements. In this regard, the
board shall issue by rule safe harbor language that nonlicensees may use in connection
with such financial information. A person or firm that does not hold a valid certificate or
permit, or a registration issued under section 326A.04, 326A.05, or 326A.06, paragraph
(b)
, or has not otherwise complied with section 326A.04 or 326A.05 as required in this
chapter shall not assume or use any title or designation that includes the word "accountant"
or "accounting" in connection with any other language, including the language of a report,
that implies that the person or firm holds such a certificate, permit, or registration or has
special competence as an accountant. A person or firm that does not hold a valid certificate
or permit issued under section 326A.04 or 326A.05 or has not otherwise complied with
section 326A.04 or 326A.05 as required in this chapter shall not assume or use any title
or designation that includes the word "auditor" in connection with any other language,
including the language of a report, that implies that the person or firm holds such a
certificate or permit or has special competence as an auditor. However, this paragraph
does not prohibit any officer, partner, member, manager, or employee of any firm or
organization from affixing that person's own signature to any statement in reference to the
financial affairs of such firm or organization with any wording designating the position,
title, or office that the person holds, nor prohibit any act of a public official or employee in
the performance of the person's duties as such.

(h)(1) No person holding a certificate or registration or firm holding a permit under
this chapter shall use a professional or firm name or designation that is misleading about
the legal form of the firm, or about the persons who are partners, officers, members,
managers, or shareholders of the firm, or about any other matter. However, names of one
or more former partners, members, managers, or shareholders may be included in the
name of a firm or its successor.

(2) A common brand name or network name part, including common initials,
used by a CPA firm in its name, is not misleading if the firm is a network firm as
defined in the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) Code of
Professional Conduct in effect July 1, 2011, and when offering or rendering services that
require independence under AICPA standards, the firm complies with the AICPA code's
applicable standards on independence.

(i) Paragraphs (a) to (h) do not apply to a person or firm holding a certification,
designation, degree, or license granted in a foreign country entitling the holder to engage
in the practice of public accountancy or its equivalent in that country, if:

(1) the activities of the person or firm in this state are limited to the provision of
professional services to persons or firms who are residents of, governments of, or business
entities of the country in which the person holds the entitlement;

(2) the person or firm performs no attest or compilation services and issues no reports
with respect to the financial statements of any other persons, firms, or governmental
units in this state; and

(3) the person or firm does not use in this state any title or designation other than
the one under which the person practices in the foreign country, followed by a translation
of the title or designation into English, if it is in a different language, and by the name
of the country.

(j) No holder of a certificate issued under section 326A.04 may perform attest services
through any business form that does not hold a valid permit issued under section 326A.05.

(k) No individual licensee may issue a report in standard form upon a compilation
of financial information through any form of business that does not hold a valid permit
issued under section 326A.05, unless the report discloses the name of the business through
which the individual is issuing the report, and the individual:

(1) signs the compilation report identifying the individual as a certified public
accountant;

(2) meets the competency requirement provided in applicable standards; and

(3) undergoes no less frequently than once every three years, a peer review
conducted in a manner specified by the board in rule, and the review includes verification
that the individual has met the competency requirements set out in professional standards
for such services.

(l) No person registered under section 326A.06, paragraph (b), may issue a report
in standard form upon a compilation of financial information unless the board by rule
permits the report and the person:

(1) signs the compilation report identifying the individual as a registered accounting
practitioner;

(2) meets the competency requirements in board rule; and

(3) undergoes no less frequently than once every three years a peer review conducted
in a manner specified by the board in rule, and the review includes verification that the
individual has met the competency requirements in board rule.

(m) Nothing in this section prohibits a practicing attorney or firm of attorneys from
preparing or presenting records or documents customarily prepared by an attorney or firm
of attorneys in connection with the attorney's professional work in the practice of law.

(n) The board shall adopt rules that place limitations on receipt by a licensee or a
person who holds a registration under section 326A.06, paragraph (b), of:

(1) contingent fees for professional services performed; and

(2) commissions or referral fees for recommending or referring to a client any
product or service.

(o) Anything in this section to the contrary notwithstanding, it shall not be a violation
of this section for a firm not holding a valid permit under section 326A.05 and not having
an office in this state to provide its professional services in this state so long as it complies
with the applicable requirements of section 326A.05, subdivision 1.

Sec. 36. GOOD CAUSE EXEMPTION.

The Board of Cosmetology may amend Minnesota Rules so that they conform with
this act. The Board of Cosmetology may use the good cause exemption under Minnesota
Statutes, section 14.388, subdivision 1, clause (3), in adopting the amendment, and
Minnesota Statutes, section 14.386, does not apply, except as it relates to Minnesota
Statutes, section 14.388.
