About Us - NACAP

Certified Accounting Paraprofessional
National Association of Certified Accounting Paraprofessionals


National Association of Certified Accounting Paraprofessionals (NACAP) serves accounting paraprofessionals. Accounting paraprofessionals are the "Paralegals" of the public accounting profession.

An accounting paraprofessional is an individual, qualified by education, training or work experience who is employed or engaged by a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) or CPA firm, who performs specific delegated accounting services under the supervision of a CPA.

NACAP provides America's #1 accounting paraprofessional license.

The Certified Accounting Paraprofessional (CAP) license is the premier accreditation for accounting paraprofessionals working for CPAs or CPA firms providing bookkeeping, accounting, payroll, QuickBooks, or tax services. The license allows you to place "CAP" behind your name and assures employers and clients of your accounting knowledge, skill, experience, and ethics.

For more information on the CAP license, go to Certified Accounting Paraprofessional.


NACAP protects the public interest by helping to ensure that only qualified accounting paraprofessionals provide accounting paraprofessional services and assures the public that licensed CAPs are trustworthy and competent.
