Is one allowed to perform an audit under his own CPA license on the side while working for a CPA (Big 4) firm in the Audit service line. Is this policy discussed anywhere in EY’s policy?

Most likely not. I know KPMG is strict about any kind of side job so I'm assuming all the big 4 have similar rules.

If this wasn't against the rules I'm sure every senior manager and most partners would try to audit their clients"on the side", and collect all the fees, rather than get paid a small percentage and still do all the work.
