New Certificate Requirement

Tuesday, July 2, 2013 - 5 comments

Reminder— Starting the 2013/2014 CTEC registration cycle, all current certificates must be made visible to consumers at the primary place of business. CTEC certificates can be displayed at the entrance, on desks or another conspicuous location where business activities are performed.

The 2013/2014 CTEC registration cycle starts August 1, 2013.

Mandy, I have been a little folder and I laminated, 3-hole punched, and inserted into that folder that has all of my important business docs such as Business License for the city, CTEC registration certificate, IRS PTIN registration confirmation as well as e-filer status, bond info, etc. I present it to each client so they know that my business is legit. Perhaps implementing a similar practice will help you out.

Mary- The certificate that you can print online is just so you have something right away. CTEC sends the official certificate to you by mail.

What is the proper protocol if you do not have an official office/place of business; for instance, if your work out of your home, but only meet with clients at their locations or at a public location such as a coffee shop etc.? Thank you, Mandy

For cases like yours, we recommend taking the certificate with you when meeting clients.
