The ICB now offer a study & experience route to Fellow Membership and below you'll find the Level 4 Certificate options that will contribute toward this. By completing three of the four exam options within this level you will be awarded the Level 4 Diploma in Advanced Bookkeeping and Accounting. We are the only college that can provide a structured study option for these elements of study.
Employment: These advanced elements will ensure you have a wider grasp of management & financial accounting, where taxation is also covered comprehensively. On completion, you will have greater responsibility within the completion of accounts for incorporated business (limited companies). If you are self-employed as a bookkeeper, the DFS and CTAX qualifications will permit you to prepare and submit accounts for micro entities and small businesses under the financial reporting standards form FRS105 and FRS102 (section 1a), without the help of an accountant.
If you wish to gain the full Level 4 Diploma qualification our COMBINED COURSE PACKAGE, is the most cost effective way, where you can save 25% on fees.

There is a final exam at the end of each of the above modules and all are completed from home. Each individual subject is a Level 4 Certificate qualification in its own right and will cover your ICB CPD requirement for one year. If you have complete three of the above, you will be awarded the overall Level 4 Diploma in Advanced Bookkeeping & Accounting qualification.
