AAT is the UK’s leading qualification and membership body for accounting and finance staff, with over 125,000 members in more than 90 countries worldwide. AAT qualifications provide Accounting Technician status. Accounting Technicians work at all levels of finance, from accounts clerks to finance directors.

This is a practical course showing you how to deal with the bookkeeping for sales, purchases, payments and receipts in a typical work situation. This will prepare you for producing the accounts for both sole traders and partnerships at the next level. In addition you will learn how to create the management accounts that help improve the performance of the business. Finally, we will show you how to complete the accounts on Sage - the most common software used in accounting departments.
