Bookkeeping course cost:
Any firm of accountants who is recruiting new staff into their accounts teams – whether it be Business Services or Audit, or those studying ACA, ACCA or AAT. Double entry bookkeeping is the foundation for all future accountancy studies and for all future work in accountancy. “Reading, writing and arithmetic” is the foundation for anyone starting at Primary School. Double entry bookkeeping is the same for anyone starting in Accounting Practice.
Although we are passionate about how quickly you will see a return on The Balancing Act bookkeeping course cost, we want to make sure it is relevant to your business before you purchase it. Hence we have set out below some categories of learners for whom the course might not be appropriate.
Entrepreneurs & Business Owners
The Balancing Act is designed for those seeking a professional finance career in Accountancy. It is not suitable for those who wish to have an overview of their own company finances and therefore the bookkeeping course cost would not be a good investment.
Managers with responsibilities outside finance should not buy The Balancing Act as it is much more detailed than their needs require and again the bookkeeping course cost would not be a good spend.
While The Balancing Act will provide a thorough grounding in the concepts required, bookkeepers should always get a full AAT professional qualification before embarking on client work in order to be fully qualified and insured.
New recruits not working in accounting practice.
The Balancing Act takes students from processing daily transactions, such as sales and purchases and cash receipts and payments right up to a Balance Sheet and a Profit & Loss Account. This will generally be too much too soon for those with an accounting transactions role in industry and commerce.
New recruits starting on the full Level 2 Certificate in Accounting.
As above, The Balancing Act could be too much too soon. Level 2 takes students up-to the Initial Trial Balance. Period end accounts, including a Balance Sheet and a Profit & Loss Account, are covered at Level 3. We have had clients purchase The Balancing Act for students who have completed their Level 2 and still haven’t really got to grips with double entry bookkeeping. The pass mark in all AAT exams is 70% and so one can pass the Level 2 bookkeeping exams and still not understand 30% of it. This is no good in the office! Someone completing The Balancing Act at this stage should really be achieving between 90% and 100% in their end of course test.
As with any high-quality training tool, The Balancing Act comes with a bookkeeping course cost. You may have used the calculator on this page to determine that in fact this bookkeeping course cost comes with a significant return on investment. You may still be unsure and, of course, the best way to be sure is to try. We are therefore delighted to offer a ‘satisfaction guaranteed’ promise. Your entire bookkeeping course cost will be refunded without quibble. This has not happened yet and we are delighted to offer it to provide reassurance.
