Any views on the best professional body to join in order to learn about the
basics of Technical Accounts/book-keeping?

Which has the best structure for training, the best training programmes, the
fairest exams, and has international standing?

"Professional" is not a word in the UK that sits alongside
"book-keeping". If you want to progress as an accountant you need
ICAEW/ACA or whatever it is now - Chartered Accountancy - or ACCA -
every bit as good...

AAT offers an intermediate book-keeping-type qualification which you
can use to blend back into ACCA.

Can I not register with them, home study and then run my own
business for self employed people ?
I've never heard of them before. AAT is much more widely known, and more
likely to be accepted by potential clients and employers.

Well why not just skip the study, skip registering and run your own
business for self employed people......many have.

Silly idea though. If LtdCo Ltd (or Sole Trader T/A Me) needs a
bookkeeper, much better to go on PAYE. HMRC will (arguably) confirm
some years down the line that that was the situation anyway. and you
don't have to be Insured against the enormous cock-ups you are certain
to make - having no experience or background knowledge.

Bookkeeping is a doddle after a couple of years of mistakes which are
corrected by other people who know what they are doing.
