I am AAT qualified and was told by the ICAEW that AML checks have to be completed for each client, on a regular basis. Is this correct? I am with Credit Safe but its far too expensive for my small company. I use Tax Calc for most other things. I will look into their checks to see if I can save money.
Thank you. I am sure they did understand you but nether the less there is no need for rudeness in this discussion. Including you telling me to 'shut up'.
Are you seriously crap at marketing and, if so, could it help, to be part of a franchise?
Sorry but I don't think that was very politely written.
I don't advertise and get the majority of my work as word of mouth. I use Facebook occasionally and I am on LinkedIn but neither of them have I had new clients from. I don't have a website up and running. When I did for many years it didn't bring me new clients. Word of mouth has played a big part.
It takes time and effort. It won't always be slow. Lots of people need accountants and likely to be more needed with the new MTD that will affect everyone next year.
I have been a practicing accountant for 18 years now. It took quite a few years before I was earning anything. I had the financial support of my husband so that really helped. I would stay stick at it if you love it and can financially manage.
Yes 5 children of their own from baby up to teenager (not sure of exact age). Thats one of the reasons I took it away as an expense.
I have spoken to Companies House this morning and been advised to complete RP07 form. They will try and contact the Directors(s) and if they don't receive a response then the Companies Registered Office address will be reverted to Companies House. Thank you all for your valuable advice.
Thank you. I will call Companies House and it looks like I need to complete the disputed Registered office form.
I fully understand what your saying. I too am right in the middle of tax season. Coming on here has been a nice break from tax returns if nothing else.
Thank you for your reply. I am AAT member and do not give financial advise so have already said its not something I could do for them but wanted to find out so as a friend I could give some basic advice about it and its good to know for reference.
They are not my client and only want a value of the business. I only know how long its been trading what the profit estimate is and its a dog grooming company. I don't want to ask for the accounts if I am not able offer the service they require.
