I have applied for my ACCA practising certificate (non audit). This was not without problems after receiving conflicting opinions from the ACCA as I qualified in industry. I would therefore encourage anyone else in a similar situation to make sure you put questions in writing to the ACCA team as they seem to be treated more seriously/are checked against the most current guidance.
In anticipation of receiving my PC I have also identified the below mandatory admin requirements-have I missed anything? I already had a dormant ltd co setup that I can use to trade through and have registered my preferred/business domain name.
Open bank account. I looked at Handelsbanken but have opted to go with HSBC who I already bank with personally.
Register with HMRC/ICO.
Arrange cover with another ACCA practice. Not sure if this will be difficult but will ring round and find out.
PII insurance. Might look at ICPA as the helpline is appealing as well.
KYC checklist / process and engagement letter template.
