Continuity partner needed

Contuinuity partner needed for new Sussex based practice targetting the education sector

Didn't find your answer?

Hello

I'm an FCCA starting a new practice to provide services to (mainly) academies. Services will include accounting, due diligence, and payroll but not audit. The final piece in the jigsaw is a continuity agreement.  If anyone is able to assist I'd be grateful if you could email me on:

Thanks

Roger

Is this to enable you to get your practising certificate or is it to protect your clients? There is a big difference between the two.

Both. Even if I were not concerned about protecting my clients, they will be.

If you mean the clients, no client in 20 years has asked me about a continuity agreement. Very few have even asked about qualifications.

Andy - that's interesting, and surprising. When I was working in the education sector it was a question I always asked every small provider of services i.e. what would happen if you got hit by a bus. Often the reality would be that in that event there would be no continuity - but I preferred to be aware so that I could decide for myself whether to take that risk. Much of the work I'm targeting will be short term projects where a continuity agreement might not be important. But I also plan to add payroll services and in that regard a continuity agreement would be essential. In any event, I need such an agreement to get a practicing certificate so I'm hoping someone can help

Strange how we can sometimes ignore our own experiences. It was only after I posted that I always ask "what would happen to our account if you get hit by a bus?" that I 'remembered' that last year that happened to me. OK - not a bus but a large car. Had I been in practice then and had payroll clients I would probably have needed to activate a continuity agreement for a few months.

Could you have done that while unconscious, or in great pain and sedated, or in a coma?

Hello Roger,

Did you have any success finding a partner? I am currently in the same situation as I completing my MIP application and need to find a continuation partner so any advice would be greatly received.

Many Thanks
