Good evening. I’m a little puzzled by the rules around the ACCA practising certificates.
I work for an employer who holds ACA practicing certificate, noone else in the business is ACCA.
I haven’t been qualified long and had a few gaps in my CV (children!) so I’m not very high on the career ladder so the practicing certificate issue doesn’t affect me at the moment, but to my shock I was told today on the phone by someone at ACCA that if I was ever to get promoted to a senior position where I would submit accounts & tax returns for clients I would need a practicing certificate. Surely this can’t be correct since I’m only an employee, not a partner/director/principal? Any thoughts?February 28, 2023 at 8:09 am #679766Kim SmithKeymaster

You would only need if it were your practice but as it’s your employer firm’s name that is attached to your work, you dont need.
Yes if you were a partner in the firm signing auditor’s reports, for example, but not being in a senior position like manager. It’s the engagement partner who needs to be certified.
