Why not combine the Level 2 Certificate in Bookkeeping with our AAT Level 2 Award in Computerised Accounting:

All businesses must keep a record of their income and expenses and the records should be as detailed as possible. For some, the idea of spreadsheets, general journal books and ledger sheets is a time consuming and ineffective method of bookkeeping. For businesses computerised accounting is essential and therefore employers will search for suitable employees with both manual and computerised bookkeeping skills.
