Double Entry Accounting Test
The Double Entry Accounting Skills Test is designed to be a fast, simple and efficient way to determine if your candidate has an intuitive grasp of the basics of double entry accounting (i.e. debits and credits).
The test is ideal for graduate or entry level positions or for slightly higher level positions where you have any concerns about the candidates basic accounting skills. It is also an ideal follow on from the Bookkeeper or Part / Non Qualified Accounting Test if candidates have scored poorly in those tests.
For a more generalist test covering double entry and business acumen see the Graduate / Trainee Accountant Test.

The test covers four areas:
