I have a few questions regarding HMRC's Fit and Proper test for Accounting Services & TCSP. Keen to get some insights. FYI I am a General Manager, but not performing the accounting/ TCSP function. I do however perform the KYC/AML function.
- Do they do a credit check? And if so, will a poor credit rating / credit history / large amount of credit affect the test's outcome?
- Do they care about qualifications? E.g. educational background not in accounting / limited experience in the sector. I do have an anti money laundering course certificate.
- Will being on a Time To Pay (TTP) for personal income taxes affect my application?
