I'm working as a bookkeeper but my workplace has relocated its bookkeeping division abroad which has led myself to becoming reductant in the next few months. I'm thinking of setting up my own bookkeeping/accounting practice
I have nearly 3 years of experience in producing statutory accountant from the bookkeeping stage to producing the final accounts, calculating corporation tax, payroll, VAT and self-assessment returns. I've also got a university BA Hons degree in Business and Accounting (gained in 2013).
Would I be able to become a member of ICB without taking exams? Also would I have to be a member for a set time period before gaining a practice licence?
Thanks for any help
