Chartered Accountant / CPA (Public Practice) Test

$200.00

The Australian Chartered Accountant Test is designed for candidates who are Chartered Accountant (CA) or CPA qualified members of their relevant professional body, such as CAANZ, CPA Australia, ACCA or similar overseas professional accounting organisations. 

This test assesses accounting knowledge and skills for roles in Public Practice Chartered Accounting or CPA firms (manager level and below).

This test is country specific to Australia, with annually updated questions to reflect current taxation rates and financial reporting requirements.

If you're interested in a more industry / commerce related test have a look at the Chartered Accountant / CPA Corporate Test or the Management Accounting Test. Also see the Part Qualified (Public Practice) Accountant Test for roles requiring a lower level of technical skills.

This test covers four core accounting activities:

  • Financial Reporting
  • Core Accounting
  • Taxation
  • Business Analysis & Advisory

Recruiting managers gain insight into a candidate's skills and knowledge in each of these four activities and identify performance in the activities most relevant to the vacant role, as well as a comparative overall score and performance against a norm group of other qualified accountants.
