Bookkeeping FAQs

The Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) is a leading professional body offering skills-based accountancy and bookkeeping qualifications. 

It has over 125,000 members worldwide and their prestigious qualifications are internationally recognised and respected by employers.

AAT bookkeeping graduates are in high demand by employers for their highly practical, real-world-focused finance skills.

Once you've completed the AAT Foundation Certificate in Bookkeeping, you'll be able to take on entry-level roles such as:

  • Clerical Assistant
  • Trainee Bookkeeper
  • Accounts Clerk
  • Finance Assistant
  • Accounts Administrator

Once you've completed the most advanced AAT bookkeeping qualification, the AAT Advanced Certificate in Bookkeeping, you'll be ready to excel in more senior roles such as:

  • Professional Bookkeeper
  • Senior Bookkeeper
  • Accounts Manager
  • Ledger Manager

If you'd like to open doors to more varied accounting roles, you could also consider studying an AAT Accounting qualification.

There are two AAT Bookkeeping qualifications available.

The AAT Foundation Certificate in Bookkeeping is perfect if you have no or minimal bookkeeping experience, or if you haven't yet mastered essential skills like double-entry bookkeeping.

The AAT Advanced Certificate in Bookkeeping is your next step once you have a firm grasp of all the topics covered on the Foundation Certificate, including double-entry bookkeeping. Our AAT course guides include a detailed breakdown of the topics covered in each course.

If you plan on completing both qualifications as most students do, you can save money and transition smoothly by studying our Foundation & Advanced combined bookkeeping course.

If you’re not sure which level to choose, we recommend the AAT Skillcheck. It’s a 30-minute multiple-choice test that will suggest the right level for you based on your accounting knowledge.

Bookkeeping covers only one small area of accounting. If you’d like a broader financial skillset and more varied job opportunities, our AAT Accounting courses could be for you.

Plus, before you enrol with us, our expert AAT advisors will talk through your experience, education, and ambitions to ensure you’re choosing the right course for you.
