As you know, there are a lot of requirements to satisfy when setting up an accounting firm of your own. This is because it is crucial for you as an accountant to know how to support your clients.

  • As an accountant starting out, you will need to satisfy specific starter conditions, such as ITAA recognition and internship
  • Set your fee as an accountant
  • Take out compulsory and additional insurances
  • Continue to grow in your profession
