Hi All, I'm looking to leave industry after c 12 years after qualifying in practice as an ACA. Recent industry experience is more group reporting and group Financial control in listed organisations.
I am really keen to operate as a sole practitioner in the cloud preferably to avoid unnecessary overheads.
I appreciate I need to brush up on my tax knowledge which I will go on suitable CPD courses alongside finding some selling/marketing tactics.
However the main thing will really be getting fee income of c£40-50k in the first year. I would be really grateful on links how to get this. All I see is retiring accountant and maximiti.
I aim to leave full time employment by the end.of the summer as I wouldn't be able build a fee base on side under my contract of employment.
Any tips and advice would really be helpful as I know this will be a big.challenge but I believe I'm conticiencous and hardworking enough to do this the help of outsourcing certain things with time as it grows.
I did look into the franchise route and is still an option, however I would ideally prefer to set up remotely. Perhaps offer the Virtual FC type services too on a monthly basis.
