I am seriously considering resigning ACCA membership and joining AAT as it is easier to get a practicing certificate from them and they appear more supportive.
Because I have a young family the only option available to me is set up a practice and work from home. I have a friend who has agreed to supervise my work for a fee till I get my confidence. I am currently studying ATT to brush up my tax knowledge and my long term plan is to become a chartered tax advisor.
The other option is to work under another friend's firm but give her 50% of the fees paid by each client I sign up. She has an ACCA practicing certificate but is not yet an approved employer as she is only starting out.
Am I likely to regret resigning ACCA in future? Or should I grit my teeth build a client base under friend x's friend for 18 months (time needed for ACCA practicing certificate) while giving her half the fees and doing the work?
