Becoming a locum/self employed tax return preparer

Postby » Tue Mar 16, 2021 7:32 am

Does anyone have experience in becoming a locum as a tax return preparer/adviser for accountancy practices?
I know solicitors often hire locums on a self employed basis but it's not something I've heard accountants do.
Any advice on where/how you found your first work would be much appreciated.
How did you work around the potential 'conflict of interest' issue and were there any other problems you stumbled across?
