I have been a Licenced Accountant with the AAT since July 2001. A couple of years ago I took a break from practice as my wife passed away and I didn't know which direction to turn with my business.
However now I want to get back to it the AAT have said I have to start the entire process again from scratch - even though they have all my details and I only took a short break.
I have had a bit of a war of words with them, told them where to go and resigned - rightly or wrongly.
I now want to get back into bookkeeping and preparing accounts but of course I won't be a member of the AAT. I don't think there is anything stopping me from doing that but I assume I now need to register with HMRC for MLR, as well as get some PI insurance again.
I just wanted to make sure I got my facts right?
