Home For AAT student members AQ 2013 AAT Level 4 (Level 8 in Scotland)

Could anyone tell me if you can practice as a bookkeeper even though you do not have MIP status.

I'm effectively finished the entire course but will not be able to claim full membership due to a lack of practical work experience.

The jobs market is effectively dead where I live because of the recession and those jobs, which are available are fiercely contested hence my desire to now work for myself.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    well same here. i cant claim it either ? think you can run a self employed business . but will it look as good if you cant put MAAT on your name only AAT ?

    If you are not a full member of the AAT (i.e. student or affiliate), the MIP rules do not apply and you can work self employed. However, you cannot make any reference to you AAT qualificiation or your connection with the AAT.
