AAT External Auditing Level 4 Module – Start Date @ The Grimsby Institute
Mar 30 all-day
AAT External Auditing Level 4 Module - Start Date @ The Grimsby Institute

AAT External Auditing Module – Level 4 Diploma In Accounting

External Auditing module starts on Thursday 30th March 2017

The Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) Accounting Qualification gives you practical, internationally recognised finance and accountancy skills that can open doors for you in any industry across the world.

AAT offers a range of benefits for student members (including study support, career advice to help find the perfect job and exclusive discounts), as well as a route into chartered accountancy. If you choose to further your studies with one of the leading chartered professional bodies, such as ACCA, CIPFA or CIMA, your AAT qualification will give you generous exemptions.

What you will learn:

To understand what’s covered in External Auditing you first need to appreciate what an external audit is.

In very simple terms, an external audit is the independent examination of a set of financial statements by a suitably qualified person: the external auditor. The main objective of an audit of financial statements is to allow the external auditor to express an opinion on whether the financial statements are prepared, in all material respects, in accordance with an applicable accounting framework.

The need for an external audit stems from the fact that for companies there’s a distinction between the owners of a business – in other words, the shareholders – and the management of a business – that is, the directors who run the company on a day-to-day basis on behalf of the shareholders.

AAT Personal Tax Level 4 Module – Start Date @ The Grimsby Institute
May 18 all-day
AAT Personal Tax Level 4 Module - Start Date @ The Grimsby Institute

AAT Personal Tax Module – Level 4 Diploma In Accounting

Personal Tax module starts on Thursday 18th May 2017

The Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) Accounting Qualification gives you practical, internationally recognised finance and accountancy skills that can open doors for you in any industry across the world.

AAT offers a range of benefits for student members (including study support, career advice to help find the perfect job and exclusive discounts), as well as a route into chartered accountancy. If you choose to further your studies with one of the leading chartered professional bodies, such as ACCA, CIPFA or CIMA, your AAT qualification will give you generous exemptions.

The AAT Personal Tax module covers:

  • Calculating income from all sources and identifying taxable and non-taxable items
  • Applying current legislation to calculate tax payable on income
  • Accounting for capital gains tax according to current legislation
  • Preparing accurate computations and completing relevant parts of self-assessment tax returns

 

This unit is about the key aspects of taxation that affect UK taxpayers. It covers income tax, National Insurance (NI), capital gains tax and inheritance tax. This unit provides students with the underpinning theory on taxation, such as what makes for a fair and equitable taxation system.

Students then explore three core areas of income that contribute to a taxpayer’s income tax liability: employment income, income from investments and income from property. Deductions and reliefs that apply to this income are then covered, so that students can compute the net income tax payable or reclaimable for a UK taxpayer. The unit covers NI as applicable to employment income, together with the key principles that are part of capital gains tax and inheritance tax.

Students are also expected to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of how UK taxpayers can minimise their tax liability legally. For example, investing in a new individual savings account (NISA) will ensure that interest on the investment will be exempt from tax, whereas an investment in a building society will usually give rise to a tax implication.

The ethical issues that surround this complex area will also be considered. Taking all areas together, students will gain knowledge and understanding of all key areas of UK tax that can affect an individual UK taxpayer.
