During the diploma, you'll be introduced to a number of more complicated accountancy tasks, including the preparation of final accounts for sole traders and partnerships, indirect tax, and advanced bookkeeping.

You'll learn how to maintain cost accounting records and how to prepare reports and returns, as well as exploring the ethics that affect accountants in today's industry.

As this Advanced Diploma in Accounting is aimed at staff currently working in a finance role (across all occupations and sectors of employment), you will normally need to have completed the AAT Foundation Certificate.
