Part / Non-Qualified Accountant (Public Practice) Test

 

 

 

"Just some positive feedback, the Manager we got to sit the test achieved 69% - and they interviewed well so we will be making her an offer. We also used your ‘part qualified’ test for one of the intermediate/seniors we were looking at. This person interviewed very well, but we have been caught out by this in the past – so we thought the test was a good idea, they only achieved 14% - as a result of this, we have decided not to go ahead with an offer. In the past we have made offers but have subsequently found the candidate fell well short of what was expected technically."

Part / Non-Qualified Accountant (Public Practice) Test

$200.00

The New Zealand Part / Non Qualified Accountant (Public Practice) Test is designed for those working as accountants, but who are not Chartered Accountants. This would include those with tertiary qualifications in accounting, provisional members of accounting professional bodies or those with no formal qualifications but whose work experience and job categorises them as accountants.

This test assesses accounting knowledge and skills for roles in Public Practice Chartered Accounting firms (for positions where being a Chartered Accountant is not required) and generalist roles in industry or commerce such as Company Accountant, where the role requires knowledge across all areas of accounting (including taxation).  

The test is country-specific to New Zealand, with annually updated questions to reflect current taxation rates and financial reporting requirements. 

This test covers four core accounting activities:

  • Financial Reporting
  • Double Entry Accounting
  • Taxation
  • Management / Business Advisory

As a recruiting manager, you gain insight into candidate's skills and knowledge in each of these four activities, as well as a comparative overall score and performance against a norm group of other part qualified and qualified by experience accountants. You can also identify a candidate's performance in the activities most relevant to your vacant role.
