Advanced Certificate in Bookkeeping Level 3
Advanced Certificate in Bookkeeping level 3 – Examinations x 3
The level 3 qualification offers progression for those who already have bookkeeping knowledge at Foundation level, either to secure a bookkeeping role or go on to further study. It covers areas like advanced double entry bookkeeping, year end procedures and financial statements.
This unit is the first of two Advanced financial accounting units. It develops Foundation skills, incorporating advanced bookkeeping and managing records for non current assets, in preparation for producing final accounts for unincorporated organisations. The purpose of this unit is to build on skills and knowledge learned in the Foundation level accounting units and to develop bookkeeping skills, taken to an initial trial balance. This is valuable progress for the student, both in terms of moving towards preparing final accounts and also in terms of offering employers more technical skills at this stage. The bookkeeping skills that students have acquired at an earlier stage will be reinforced and developed.
- Apply the principles of advanced double entry bookkeeping.
- Implement procedures for the acquisition and disposal of non current assets.
- Prepare and record depreciation calculations.
- Record period end adjustments.
