Currently working as an office administrator, but have had a lot of involvement of VAT returns etc, which I've really enjoyed.
Dh is considering starting his own business, so would like to be able (eventually) to do the books to keep costs down.
It needs to be via post/e-mail (childcare etc)
Goodness, I don't know where to start with advice.
There is ACA, ACCA or CIMA.
But many people who become interested initially as a means to support their partner with the accounts and book keeping, often start with ACA :
"I also meet many couples that have small businesses where the partner is doing the books. The ones that are enjoying it are the ones that have studied the AAT. People tell me that they're too old to be studying exams so I tell them to just do the coursework instead.
ACA is good becasue it starts with all the book keeping and accounts, from a business point of view.
How does that sound ?
