Wondering if I could acquire some knowledge from members with regards to this.
I'm an ACCA member who doesn't yet hold a practicing certificate. I plan on taking on some private work and I wanted to confirm what the limitations are being a member and not having the practicing certificate.
Am I correct in saying that:
1) broadly, anyone can call themselves an accountant and produce unaudited accounts and tax returns
2) under the practicing certificate guidance notes, as I'm an ACCA member, I cannot act in the above capacity without having a practicing certificate (so I'm essentially limited by my qualification)
It's all a bit confusing as to what you can and can't do over and above basic bookkeeping if you're a member of a professional body.
I understand I couldn't use the term certified or chartered certified without the PC.
As usual all guidance is appreciated.
