FAQs


1. What does the FSM Program Entail?

FSM firms enroll all their certified and non-certified client-facing staff in exchange for discounted membership dues and other exclusive benefits. Any staff can be enrolled at the discretion of the firm. 

2. What are the benefits of being an FSM firm?
  • Deeply discounted membership rate for certified and non-certified staff
  • Provides an invaluable employee benefit
  • CPE discounts for all staff (including seminars, conferences, in-house CPE and broadcast events)
  • Recognition in SumNews, masscpas.org and MassCPAs social media
  • Single invoice for easy dues renewal
  • FSM logo to highlight your participation in the program
  • The firm’s participation supports the growth and sustainability of the accounting profession
3. What is the annual billing period?

The membership year is May 1 – April 30. The renewal period is May 1 – July 30.

4. How does the annual billing work?

FSM firms will receive a list in March of current MassCPAs members linked to their firm. Firms will review and update their membership list to reflect current employees (employees can be added and removed online).

The firm’s annual dues invoice will be based off of the updated list.

The firm will be billed a one-time $25 administrative fee (in addition to the dues rate) for each new member who is added to the firm. Current MassCPAs members that have been added to the firm will not be subject to an administrative fee. 

5. What are the FSM dues for 2022/2023?

Certified Employees (Fellow Members)

Regular rate: $409
FSM rate: $338

Non-Certified Employees (Associate Members)

Regular rate: $281
FSM rate: $134

Administration Fee: $25 (one-time fee for new Fellow and Association Members)

6. How do we enroll new employees throughout the year?

Non-Members

If a new staff member joins the firm after the renewal period (May 1 – July 30), the firm can add the employee online or contact Amanda Curtis  (acurtis@masscpas.org)  to enroll them. If the employee is not a current MassCPAs member, they will be enrolled in membership and the firm will only be charged a $25 administrative fee. The firm will not owe dues for that employee until the following renewal period. 

Members

If a new employee is already a MassCPAs member and has not paid his/her dues, we will adjust the dues to reflect the FSM rate and invoice the firm. If the individual is a member and has paid his/her dues, we will add them to the firm with no charge.

7. What if an employee leaves the firm after the renewal period?

The member retains their membership until the next membership year. The firm will not receive a refund for this employee. Memberships cannot be reciprocated to a new employee. However, if the firm adds new staff throughout the year (after the renewal period), they will be added as members and the firm will not have to pay dues (see above).
