Hi, I'm AAT qualified (level 3) and work as a book-keeper (not in practice). I would love to go self employed (I'm intending on keeping my job which is 30 hours a week and trying to build up from home) but wondered what due dilligence I would need to do apart from verify ID. I've read I would need to registed with HMRC for anti-money laundering as well. Any advice would be appreciated.
I also wondered what other people do in regards to software, do clients pay for their own software and you use it or do you provide it as part of your fee? Any other help and advice would be great (would love to hear from people who were in a similar postion to me but have gained some clinets etc and have some advice would be great).
