Is my credit card information safe?
Yes. CPABC protects all member/student information at levels that meet the Payment Card Industry - Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) requirements. This means that transmissions between you and the CPABC Secure site have the same levels of encryption as transmissions with most banks, and that the secure site’s servers are protected against intrusion. In addition, CPABC does not keep any of your credit card information on file, purging it after each transaction. If you would like to learn more about the PCI-DSS requirements, visit the PCI website.
How do I get a receipt?
If you pay your dues online, a confirmation of your payment will be sent to your preferred email address on file. You can also print the receipt through CPABC Online Services. If you are paying by cheque or through online banking, please allow a few days for your receipt to be posted online.
Can I donate to the profession at the same time?
Yes. CPABC administers two charities: the Benevolent Fund and the Chartered Professional Accountants’ Education Foundation (CPAEF). The Benevolent Fund provides short-term assistance to members and their families suffering from unusual financial hardship. The CPAEF supports the advancement of accounting education in BC. To contribute to either charity, simply include your donation amount with your annual dues payment, and specify your charity of choice. A tax receipt will be issued for all donations.
