AAT Advanced Certificate in Bookkeeping (Level 3)

The AAT Advanced Certificate in Bookkeeping develops existing skills and knowledge to an advanced level for anyone wishing to pursue a career in bookkeeping.

About the course

The AAT Advanced Certificate in Bookkeeping offers progression for those who already have bookkeeping knowledge at Foundation level (Level 2) to employment in a bookkeeping role or to further study. The Advanced Certificate is open to those who are working and those who are not currently in employment. This qualification is suitable for those who have completed the Foundation Certificate in Bookkeeping and may also help a student already working in a bookkeeping role to progress by offering them formal recognition of their skills.


There are no prerequisites for the study of the AAT Advanced Certificate in Bookkeeping. However, for the best chance of success, we recommend that students begin their studies with a good standard of English and maths. If students do have any other relevant school or college qualifications, a degree or some accounting experience, these may in certain circumstances entitle students to claim exemptions.

The purpose of the AAT Advanced Certificate in Bookkeeping is to ensure that students have the advanced bookkeeping skills necessary to work in a bookkeeping role or to progress to higher level accountancy. Students will gain the knowledge and skills needed to carry out advanced bookkeeping transactions and tasks in three mandatory units.


The qualification is composed of three mandatory units assessed in three end-of-unit assessments:

Advanced Bookkeeping

Final Accounts Preparation

Indirect Tax

A student completing this qualification will understand advanced bookkeeping principles and concepts, preparing financial statements for sole traders and partnerships and issues around indirect tax (VAT in the UK) in business, all in the context of the ethical issues a bookkeeper may encounter.
