We need to manually send the appropriate test link to you after purchase - we will do this within 4 business hours of purchase (usually much quicker).  Completed reports will be sent to you automatically once your candidate has completed the test.  Links for other tests you purchase at the same time will arrive immediately after purchase as normal.

What our clients are saying

Here's what some of Accountests clients tell us

“As a Finance Recruiter and former accountant I found the test to be very useful. It identified short comings I was aware of, and the suggested interview questions were excellent examples that would give the qualitative feed back. i.e is the candidate aware of the limitation, how do they address it and does it impact.”

Samantha Charman

Specialist Recruitment Consultant - Aura Consulting

"Traditionally we would hire accountants based on their tested technical competence, without considering how they would fit into a team based on their personal profile. The APPQ system helps us hire new people in a way that balances our team. "

Sue de Bievre, CEO

Beany, NZ

"We have found that Accountests gives us the opportunity to understand our candidates accounting ability, which no other product has done until now. It also gives us the opportunity to base further questions for the candidate around what we can see their ability is and enable us to make an informed decision."

Sharlene Bryant, Director

Baker Tilly, Hawkes Bay, NZ

"I found the test quite easy to use and interpret and I am really pleased to have this service at my disposal in the future. It’s more objective when employing staff than going by their interview skills alone."

Michelle Thompson, Owner

Tax & Trust Professionals, NZ

"Just some positive feedback, the Manager we got to sit the test achieved 69% - and they interviewed well so we will be making her an offer. In the past we have made offers but have subsequently found the candidate fell well short of what was expected technically."

Sudhir Lala, Director

The Advisory Group, Auckland, NZ

"We now use these tests to assess all potential accounting staff as part of our recruitment process."

Dianne Wilson, Business Manager

McIntyre Dick, Invercargill, NZ

"The Accountest was an extremely useful tool which assisted in our recruitment decision. The person we engaged is at the standard we expected and is in-line with the skill rating in the test results.”

Karen Abery, Practice Manager

Ingham Mora Chartered Accountants, Tauranga, NZ

"The candidates that do well in the test certainly seem to be our better performers."

Arran Findlayson, CEO

The Back Office Co, Auckland, NZ

"I am a very experienced Bookkeeper and the Accountests Bookkeeper Test is exactly what I have been looking for to test potential contractors."

Leanie Jones, Owner

Jones Business Solutions Ltd, Napier, NZ

"We’ve used Accountests a few times now and I’ve been impressed with your service. It’ll certainly be a required step for every hire!"

Paul Struckman, Director

Greenhawk, Auckland, NZ

"We used the management accountant test when reviewing two candidates during recruitment, the results of the test were very useful in understanding the comparative strengths of the two candidates. The reports were very clear and easy to understand."

James Bayly, CEO

Freedom Internet, Auckland, NZ

"This was a very good investment in the recruitment process. It is one tool in a bigger process, however it is valuable to assess the candidate and to identify development needs. The instructions, how-to video's and support/FAQ were very helpful. The test is high level and in a limited time-frame. No time for someone taking the test to google answers and the answers are not easy to guess."

Helen Blom, Business Owner


"The abilities being shown by the recruited candidate correlates with the outcome of their test, and they are progressing and delivering to expectations"
