About Us

Accountests was launched 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 CVs and Resumes 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 SME businesses, accounting and bookkeeping professional bodies and the public sector to ensure they meet the needs of all recruiters of accountants.
