CPA Skills Test

$200.00

The CPA Test is designed for accountant candidates who are qualified members of their relevant professional body, such as CPA or ACCA.

This test assesses accounting knowledge and skills especially for roles in industry or commerce such as Company Accountant or Financial Controller.

This test covers four core accounting activities:

  • Financial Reporting (US GAAP but also IFRS)
  • Core Accounting
  • Business Advisory & Analysis
  • Budgeting & Forecasting

Recruiting managers gain insight into a candidate's skills and knowledge in each of these four activities and identify performance in the activities most relevant to the vacant role, as well as a comparative overall score and performance against a norm group of other qualified accountants.
