Word of a recent regulatory case drew attention to the sanctions that can be applied to members practicing without a certificate.
ACCA practising certificate
I've worked in small practice for many years.
I recently qualified with ACCA, and have since been asked by family to prepare their year accounts, and VAT/Corp Tax Returns etc...
The ACCA has a reduced rate fee (£83 - full time £393) for having a part time practising certificate for fees below £5,000.
I've been a sole director of an incorporated ACCA practice for four years and have continuity of practice arrangements with an outside firm.
I have been with my current employer for 9 years since I left University, I qualified with ACCA in 2006.
I'm an ACCA qualified accountant currently applying for an ACCA
