    Hi everyone,

    I go to Portsmouth University and I study Accounting with Finance currently in my second year. I have a placement year coming up this year, and during the placement year, you can either work for a firm or either take the self-employed route. and I want to take the path of starting up my own accounting firm as a partnership with my girlfriend who is also doing the same degree.

    but the question is, I know it is a risky option, and hard to find clients, but what are the sort of things that I would generally need to learn and practice, because i want to start practicing and learning the things that clients would need help in from an accountant.

    I want to be able to help individuals to do their self-assessment returns and tax returns, and hopefully help start-ups to help with advice, structure and book-keeping services, as well as helping small firms with book keeping and corporation tax and VAT.

    I know it is an ambition, but everyone has to start from somewhere right?

    and I would love the advice on what things i should learn and any other advice, so I have good knowledge in helping clients with their financial issues.

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
