Professional Cover - Cumbria

CelticStarCelticStar Well-KnownMAAT Posts: 142
Would anyone be able to be my professional cover please? I have approached quite a few AAT MIPs in Cumbria but those that replied said that they offer professional cover for one or two other AAT members already so couldn't help me. My local branch is not that active so it may be quite a while before I meet other members there - let alone meet someone who would be willing to be my professional cover - Cumbria being quite a sparsely populated place. I have offered reciprocal cover and also free technical help as my husband repairs/networks computers, Pads and iPhones, but no luck so far. It is quite disheartening.

    Hi @CelticStar
    Sorry I can't help as I am based in Hampshire so rather far away from you!
    Remember that your professional cover doesn't necessarily have to be MAAT - is there another local accountant that could help you out?

    Hi @MarieNoelle, thanks for your kind reply. Most of the local accountants seem even less inclined to help unfortunately, I think most people I have approached just seem to see me as potential competition so they don't really want to help.

    Does the professional cover (Continuity of practice cover) have to be local? I am almost exceeding the limit for not having a professional cover and need one as well. I am far away in London. If distance does not matter in this technology advanced aged, them I might put myself on offer for a reciprocal cover.

    Hi mskaat, thanks for your message. Sorry I'm not able to private message you - I'm having problems with accessing various things on the forum at the moment - but if you can private message me we can have a chat.
