OK. I need a Peer Review, how do I schedule it? We have you covered. Follow this step-by-step guide.


Fee Structure

The Peer Review Alliance with the Illinois CPA Society covers the scheduling and processing of reviews and committee expenses. All firms enrolled in the Peer Review program are invoiced an annual fee by the Peer Review Alliance. See details.


Choosing a Peer Reviewer

A Firm-On-Firm Review is one in which you hire another qualified CPA firm to conduct the review. This review gives you personal assurance that the reviewer’s qualifications fit your firm’s needs. It also gives you more control over cost.
