Few questions about ethics

I have a few questions about Professional Ethics that I was wondering if someone could answer:

1) What is the AATs view on cold calling - is it forbidden by the guidelines?

2) What should you do if you have a close relationship with a client? for instance, should you immediately cease the relationship?

3) Is it permitted in the AAT guidelines for: Sole trader X has tax expertise and sole trader Y doesn't. Sole trader Y lets sole trader X do the tax and then soletrader X invoices sole traders Y clients for soletraders X services?

Thanks in advance.

    In answer to 1) Cold calling is not forbidden as long as it is not done outside of working hours and is not harassing...i believe!

    In answer to 2) Close relationship a familiarity threat - I do not believe you would cease the relationship if this was one of your clients you would need to be objective.

    3rd one I am not 100% sure.
