Bookkeeper Test | Professional Level (R-2)


£73.00 (Ex. Tax)

The Bookkeeper Test from Accountest assesses people who are working at a level below an accountant, but whose job includes bookkeeping functions using current cloud accounting packages. The test assesses knowledge of areas such as:

  • processing financial information,
  • double entry accounting,
  • the ability (or not) to produce accurate month-end accounts
  • and the ability to interpret financial information to add value to the business owner.

The different competency levels assessed within the Bookkeeper Test determine the range of abilities and value the candidate can add to the business owner.

This test is applicable for such roles as Office Manager, Assistant Accountant or Bookkeeper.

The Bookkeeper Test is specifically designed for the United Kingdom tax regime.  In order to reflect current taxation rates and financial reporting requirements, questions are updated annually.

This test covers four core bookkeeping activities:

  1. Processing and Journals
  2. Accounting Concepts
  3. Business Support
  4. Taxation and Payroll

Lasting 30 minutes, questions range between basic, intermediate and advanced levels.

Recruiting managers will gain insight into a candidate's skills and knowledge in each of these four activities. The report provides an overall performance score for the Bookkeeper Test, as well as a rating for the individual questions.  This allows recruiters to identify particular areas of strength or weakness.

Alternative tests suitable for this business area are available, for example Double Entry Accounting Test.  For those who wish to assess candidates' numerical ability as a stand-alone skill, separate from accounting or bookkeeping skills, we can supply you with reasoning skill tests.  Contact us for further information or speak to one of our consultants on 01285 861734 to discuss the options available.
