Can I offer accounting services if I am not qualified yet?

Hi All,

I have a degree and MSc supported with a few years accounting experience. I am about to go for a professional qualification (have not decided which one). Last few months I was helping friends with their accounts and tax. Recently I was asked to do it for other people. My question is: Can I offer accounting services? Can I register with HMRC, get an insurance, and offer accounting services without being registered with any of the professional bodies?

Thank you,
