Small bookeeping job on side


Hi,

I currently Work as a management accountant within a public organisation and in studying CIMA (strategic/final level). A friend has approached me asking to do a bit of book keeping for their company as they are getting too busy. They already have an accountant that deals with their returns etc. from a brief discussion so far I think Im just needed to input receipts on quick books one day a month - sounds pretty straightforward but I dont want to go in blind.

my question is - do I need any particular qualifications for that? Is there anything I need to know or a course/book I should invest in?

thank you

Hi Molly, welcome to the forum.

Will this be via paye or on invoice? If the latter you will need MLA cover with either CIMA or HMRC. Without it you would be breaking the law.

You don't need any qualification per se but check with CIMA that you can undertake paid bookkeeping work and also check with your employment contract to ensure you can do external work.
