Course Overview

A great bookkeeper is at the heart of any successful organisation. If you’ve a head for figures and think you could keep a steady hand on the ledger, then completing an accredited qualification that will allow you to gain ICB membership is the natural next step for you.

 

After completing this course, you’ll be fully qualified to gain employment as a bookkeeper, or to set up your own bookkeeping business. That’s because we’ll teach you all the fundamentals: how to produce a VAT return, control the sales and purchase ledgers, how to produce final accounts for different types of businesses such as partnerships and not-for-profits, and more. Even better, we’ll show you exactly how to use Sage One, one of the most commonly used accounting software packages in the UK, AND we’ll give you six months’ free access. This course is clear, intuitively structured, and talks you through all the tricky terms and different types of legislation you’ll need to be familiar with as a bookkeeper.

You’ll study in your own time and at your own pace, and did we mention that after you complete this course, you can officially add the letters ‘MICB’ after your name? Fancy!
