No qualifications required, but you need to understand the money laundering regulations and be registered with a supervisory body. As you have no qualifications, that would be HMRC (HMRC are a MLR supervisory body).
So I need to register with HMRC anti-money laundering supervision service pay the fees, pass the fit and proper test and pay fees for premises.
Then submit a written application and include
trading name (if different)
address that your activities are carried out from (this cannot be a PO Box address)
supervisor for the purposes of The Money Laundering Terrorist Financing and Transfer of Funds Regulation 2017 - details of Professional Body membership or Anti Money Laundering Supervision registration number
Self Assessment or company Unique Taxpayer Reference (UTR) number
details of which taxes you plan to deal with"
and this will be enough to operate a taxreturn business? no quals needed?
Given your experience, personal liability insurance is essential but probably hard to get.
My experience within tax is non existant, but my experience in any other field I have created a business in at one point was also non existent.
Are you really going to make money getting people £12 repayments from the £60 FRE for laundry?
No, I have an angle, it would be foolish for me to detail the angle at which I see an opportunity to make money.
Tax refund companies are making money. There are a lot of them about, in fact the market is saturated.
I don´t particularly desire to compete, I´m just at advantage where I believe I can access potential clients that most can´t.
It´s geat if I can operate without qualifications, but as I would like to learn where would you recommend to start ATT?
