Course description

AAT Level 3 and 4 Diploma in Accounting

The AAT level 3 & 4 combined accounting course will help build on your existing accounting skills, teaching you how to complete a range of advanced accounting tasks required to professionally manage a company’s accounting system. You will learn how to draft a limited company’s statutory financial statements, prepare budgets and income and expenditure forecasts, use budgetary control to improve organisational performance and prepare performance reports for management. You will also have access to Sage One Accounts Software.
