"We have recently started using Accountest assessments along with other profiling products to support our recruitment process. We have found that Accountests gives us the opportunity to understand our candidates accounting ability, which no other product has done until now. It also gives us the opportunity to base further questions for the candidate around what we can see their ability is and enable us to make an informed decision."
Sharlene Bryant, Director, Baker Tilley SR
"It's about making sure the candidates have the technical skills that clients need right now"

Part / Non-Qualified Accountant (Public Practice) Test
The Part / Non Qualified Accountant Test is designed for those working as accountants, but who are not Chartered Accountants. This would include those with tertiary qualifications in accounting, provisional members of CA professional bodies or those with no formal qualifications but whose work experience and job categorises them as accountants.
This test assesses accounting knowledge and skills for roles in Public Practice Chartered Accounting firms (for positions where being a Chartered Accountant is not required) and generalist roles in industry or commerce such as Company Accountant, where the role requires knowledge across all areas of accounting (including taxation).
The test is country-specific for Australia, with annually updated questions to reflect current taxation rates and financial reporting requirements.
This test covers four core accounting activities:
- Financial Reporting
- Double Entry Accounting
- Management / Business Advisory
As a recruiting manager, you gain insight into candidate's skills and knowledge in each of these four activities, as well as a comparative overall score and performance against a norm group of other part qualified and qualified by experience accountants. You can also identify a candidate's performance in the activities most relevant to your vacant role.

- Question Levels: Basic = 13, Intermediate = 16, Advanced = 11
