FNS40217 Certificate IV in Accounting and Bookkeeping is the latest nationally accredited qualification from the Financial Services Training Package. This qualification reflects the job roles of workers in the accounting industry, including BAS Agents and contract bookkeepers; and of those employees performing bookkeeping tasks for organisations in a range of industries.

The FNS40217 Certificate IV in Accounting and Bookkeeping qualification includes preparing and lodging business and instalment activity statements, and providing advice or dealing with the Commissioner on behalf of a taxpayer in relation to activity statements.

Student reviews

"During the course I was working full-time and even had a baby! I would recommend the college to anyone who needs to study at their own pace, not the at the pace of the college!"

Did You Know?

The End of Financial Year (EOFY) is your opportunity to claim expenses and reduce your taxable income. Consider education as an investment that can be expensed in this financial year to further reduce taxable income.

If you enrol in a course before 30th June, and the course is sufficiently related to your employment, you may be able to claim the course and certain related costs as a self-education expense.
