University of Auckland Double Entry Accounting Test

$40.00

Accountests has joined with University of Auckland to offer you the opportunity to benchmark your Double Entry Accounting skills with those needed by employers.

The Double Entry Accounting Skills Test is designed to be a fast, simple and efficient way to determine if you have a good grasp of the basics of double entry accounting (i.e. debits and credits).

Double Entry Accounting Skills Test

The test covers four areas:

  • Easy Journals – identifying journals from easy transactions
  • Harder Journals - identifying journals from harder transactions
  • Financial Statements – identifying where accounts will be found in financial statements
  • Transactions – from a journal entry identifying the transaction that has occurred


This test has been specifically designed with the assistance of University of Auckland.

The test consists of 20 questions and you will have 15 minutes only to complete the test. To get the best from the test, complete it on your own in quiet conditions.

After purchasing a test you will receive a link by email. Click on the link to access the test. Once completed you will receive an email with a link to your test report.  This report is in the same format an employer would receive so you need to read it with that in mind.

IMPORTANT NOTE : Purchasing a test allows you only ONE attempt to complete the test. Once you’ve clicked on the link you must complete the test in one go.

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

BLOM FAMILY FARM, LLC, Southland, NZ

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