    First time poster and need help regarding the above,

    I have an A level in Accountancy/Business/Economics from College
    I also have a non accountancy related degree (with finance modules) from University.
    I am currently working in a ICAEW chartered practice doing a variety of accounting work.

    I am looking at the AAT - ACA fast track,

    Would i need to complete the AAT level 3 to claim all exemptions? or can i claim them with just the AAT level 4?

    Both myself and my employer think that I would suit the AAT level 4.

    However when looking on the icaew website, its confusing as to what exemptions i can get from only doing the level 4 qualification.
    • Level 3 Accounts Preparation
    • Level 3 Prepare Final Accounts for Sole Traders and Partnerships
    • Level 4 Financial Statements
    • Level 4 External Auditing
    Business and Finance
    • Level 3 Professional Ethics
    • Level 3 Cost and Revenues
    • Level 4 Financial Performance
    Management Information
    • Level 3 Cost and Revenues
    • Level 4 Budgeting
    • Level 4 Financial Performance
    Principles of Taxation
    • Level 3 Professional Ethics
    • Level 3 Indirect Tax
    • Level 4 Personal Tax
    • Level 4 Business Tax
    e.g. for management information, I will have completed budgeting and financial performance through the level 4 AAT, however i will not have completed cost and revenue from the level 3. Would I still have the full exemption from Management information?

    I hope this makes sense.

    Thanks in advance.
