The Bookkeeping Institute of Australia has carefully chosen the 13 units in this qualification to ensure that our graduates are competent to be employed or contracted in a bookkeeping role, or to operate a business as a BAS Agent.

The 13 units have been carefully grouped into 7 assessments in order to avoid the duplications often found in individual unit assessments. That means that you only have to complete 7 assessments in order to qualify for all 13 units.  All of these 13 units are nationally recognised and will form part of a pathway towards the FNS50215 Diploma of Accounting.
