MIP - Registation Question

Didn't find your answer?

I have booked myself on to the CIMA MIP confrence in March in Surrey so that i can Network and meet other MIP's in my area

However i would like to apply for my registation before then and one of rules is i must have an agreement with another accountant if i was to become ill (or die!

(iii) ensure in the event of their illness, disability or death that services to clients are maintained, either through internal arrangements within the practice or through a written agreement with another accountant or firm (unless the client has indicated that he/she does not want to be subject to such an agreement)

Does anyone have any tips in how i can approach some MIP's in my loacl area and what is the likely hood of them agreeing?

Thank you!

I think, generally, people will be willing to help. After all, every MiP faces the very same dilemma.

The question you face is this. Are you looking for someone who will allow you to use their name and contact details in your application, OR are you looking for someone to truly step in if the need arises?

Assuming it is the latter then it will have to be someone you get to know. You will want to be comfortable that they have the same skills to manage your clients and that there is a cultural and ethical 'fit'. Importantly are they going to have the resources to step in when the need arises? For that reason I connected with a firm that is larger than mine.

Thank you. You are correct the latter.

I am going to some networking events soon and so i am hopeful i can meet some people there but also i have come contacts that may come in useful.

I would feel comfortable with a larger company as you have used.
