Hi guys

I someone can give me some advise. I am currently studying ACCA and I would like to know if I can be a MIP at the same time?

Many thanks

    I believe ACCA will heavily restrict what you can practise whilst being a student member with them - the restrictions are at their end rather than AAT's, I would give them a call before going any further.

    I agree that while you are an ACCA student you can only prepare books to trial balance stage.

    You are indeed limited to Bookkeeping to trial balance. You have a choice either only do bookkeeping, don't rub an accountancy practice yet or resign from the ACCA.

    Only you can decide which is the best option for you.

    For me I left ACCA as I didn't feel it was necessary for an accountancy practice in the modern era being aimed at micro businesses. I have yet to be proved wrong.

    If however long term you may wish to go back to employment then ACCA will help considerably with your employment and earning potential.
