Dear School Owner:
At the February, 2014 NACCAS Board of Commissioners meeting, the board adopted effective immediately, the following changes:


1. Electronic Submission of Financial Statements

Schools must have their independent CPA submit their audited financial statements electronically to NACCAS. Schools can create user profiles for their CPA’s through the member login portal. There will be a $250 processing fee assessed for schools who fail to submit their financial statements electronically. The $250 processing fee is waived until June 30, 2014. The fee for late submission of audited financial statements is not waived.


2. Regarding, Appendix #9 - Change Of Control Categories and Requirements

Requirements General to Categories 2 and 3

A balance sheet for the institution as of the effective date of the Change of Control (to be submitted within 30 days after the effective date of the Change of Control, but prior to the Commission’s approval), audited by an independent certified public accountant on an accrual basis of accounting according to GAAP.
