About Us & Meet the Team!

Accountests was launched in 2013 to address frequently heard requests from employers of accountants and bookkeepers for a reliable method of assessing the technical competency of candidates for accounting and bookkeeping roles. These employers experienced the frustration and cost of hiring staff whose actual accounting ability fell significantly short of the abilities claimed on CV's and Resume's and at interview; shortfalls that went undetected in existing selection processes. Adding Accountests to your existing selection process is as easy as it is effective


Our accountancy and bookkeeping tests reports provide you with easily interpreted results to make timely and informed recruitment decisions.

Each test is designed and validated in consultation with partner and senior manager level accountants in public practice, large corporate and medium enterprise businesses, the public sector and government departments to ensure they meet the needs of all recruiters of accountants*.

We deliver country-specific Accounting Tests for Qualified/Chartered Accountants, Part/Non-Qualified Accountants and Bookkeeping Tests for The United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand and international Cost Accounting and Management Accounting Tests applicable to any English speaking country. 

All tests are  applicable for hiring into the internal accounting functions in industry and public sectors and accounting public practice firms of any size.

The focus of each test is on quality and relevance.  Audit, Taxation and Management Accounting specialists peer reviewed and adjusted questions to be relevant to employers recruiting accountants and bookkeepers.
