Starting my own practise.

Mata Registered Posts: 1 New contributor ?
I would appreciate if someone can advice me on starting my own practise. I am an MAAT, have completed ATT and have registered to start ACCA from this Dec. I have 8 years experience in the field.
How do I get started? How easy is it to get clients. I see there are at least 10 accountancy firms around where i live so i am a liitle worried as to how i am going to get clients.
Is it better to place an advert in the local paper, or is it best to have a small office in the high street and start that way. Any suggestions will be greatly received.

    If you're an ACCA student, you won't be allowed to do anything more than bookkeeping, until you get their practising certificate, which is approx 3 years post-qual. If what you want to do is work for yourself, AAT + ATT is more than enough, as long as you have the experience.
