Have you already got some bookkeeping experience and want to build on it? Or have you done Level 2 and now need to cement your learning? Level 3 Bookkeeping is the qualification for you.
AAT Level 3 in Bookkeeping is suited for those who want to continue learning more advanced bookkeeping skills, and are looking to work in roles such as accounts manager, professional bookkeeper, or ledger manager. The course is made up of two units: Financial Accounting: Preparing Financial Statements (FAPS), and Tax Processes for Businesses (TPFB).

Estimated completion time: 3 – 5 months

There are three areas to study, made up of various subjects.
