Unfortunately as I was in industry since completion I dont have a practicing certificate. Having review the requirements I can meet most of them but some would only be achievable in practice. My former boss will sign off any backdated experience. My only issue then is whether my former employer will agree to become approved employer and if acca will allow that to be back dated. ( I think from prior enquires they will but may have changed)
I am in the fortunate position that my father in law is a ACA practicing accountant so my plan is either to ask him to let me look at a couple of peices of work to complete my experience.
My other idea (if I need to log 2yrs experience)is to for him to front a new practice and be the effective principle while I do the work, which will automatically give me the experience. Having looked at the guidelines I assume I could set up a new ltd and have him act as director ( presumably i could own shares). This would allow me to use my ACCA in my signature etc and charted in the company name/ trading style and allow me to carry out public practice work. I am unclear if everything would need to be signed off by him first or simple a adequate system of controls.
Is there away of being supervised without setting up an ltd?
