A student completing this qualification will develop an understanding of the role of the bookkeeper, including the need for confidentiality and accuracy in their work. Students will learn underpinning theory including how to identify assets, liabilities, income and expenses; how to identify profit and loss; and the differences between trading for cash and trading on credit.

Students will also develop the skills to process customer and supplier transactions, to enter receipts and payments into the cashbook and check amounts against the bank statement in preparation for bank reconciliation.

Students will be introduced to the dual effect of transactions. This is a fundamental underpinning concept for double entry bookkeeping and will support students who go on to study bookkeeping at Foundation level. 

The course fee does not include registration and membership fees. The cost of the first exam is included but any resit/retakes will incur a fee
