AAT membership fee, should I keep paying it after Level 4

I have passed AAT Level 4 and I am planning to study ACCA. I don't work at practice so there is no need for me to have MAAT. I have received a letter from AAT asking me to pay AAT membership fee. Should I keep paying the membership fee or stopping? For ACCA exemptions, I suppose to show my AAT certification. I wonder if I stop paying the membership fee, AAT will not provide certification to ACCA, is it correct? any suggestions?

    I have recently passed level 4 and wish to study ACCA. I also don't work in practice. I have decided to keep AAT membership. Apparently AAT have better local connections should I wish to do CPD and I believe it is easier to apply for MIP with AAT should I decide to do this in future. (though you cannot hold an MIP AAT certificate whilst studying ACCA).

    Thanks, CP James. you have much better knowledge than I have about AAT. I don't really know how better local connections mean to me. Does it mean I can apply a part time job at a local practice? I have a look at AAT CPD,it looks quite interesting. If you don't work at a practice, why you want to apply MIP AAT? why you can't hold MIP while you are studying ACCA? Many thanks

    You might want to apply for MIP because you want to offer self-employed book keeping services. ACCA have very strict rules I belive. Have you applied for ACCA yet?
