“The testing gives me a lot of confidence I can choose the correct candidate”

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.
- Time to complete: 30 minutes
- Number of questions: 40
- Question Levels: Basic = 13, Intermediate = 16, Advanced = 11
- Questions per topic: Double Entry Accounting = 8, Taxation = 12, Accounting = 8, Management Accounting & Business Analysis = 12
