Sales Ledger Test

Learn more about our sales ledger skills test

Keeping track of your sales, finances and accounts receivable is essential for any company - whether you're a small business or a large enterprise. Not only does it help you to keep an accurate account of your turnover, but it also ensures that all customer payments are received on time and of the correct amount.

This ultimately protects and enhances the growth of your organisation. However, creating and maintaining a reliable, efficient sales ledger takes knowledge, skill and effort that not everybody possesses. 

Unless you have the time and expertise needed to oversee your company's sales and accounts receivable spreadsheet, it's definitely worth investing in a trained accountant or sales ledger clerk to supervise this important aspect of your company's accounting and bookkeeping duties. Thankfully, our sales ledger skills test allows you to find and recruit high-quality accounting candidates in no time.

Why use a sales ledger skills test?

Enhance recruitment

Effective recruitment is a time-consuming and costly process; in fact, employers in the UK spend on average 27.5 days and £3,000 hiring a new employee. By using our skills test to streamline and optimise your candidate pool, you can effectively shortlist applicants who have the desired skills, abilities and aptitudes required for a role. This makes recruiting high-quality candidates easy and efficient. 

Accurate accounting

By using a skills test such as ours to highlight and recruit highly-skilled applicants from your talent pool, you ensure that your accounts, finances and bookkeeping are calculated accurately. Whether it's keeping track of sales, logging invoices or chasing customers when payments are not sent, having a skilled accountant and sales ledger clerk on your team helps your company to stay on track, maintain accurate records and maximise growth. 

Maintain customer satisfaction

No one enjoys being told that they haven't submitted payments on time or that their transactions haven't gone through when they actually have. Falsely accusing customers of this can seriously harm your company's reputation and business relationships. However, having a skilled, reliable sales ledger clerk on your team can maintain and enhance customer satisfaction through having an accurate record of transactions, invoices, money owed and completed sales. 

Avoid unnecessary expenses

Onboarding employees using expertly-designed skills tests such as ours ensures that your company succeeds and excels all without the need for unnecessary expenses, whether that be returning overpayments or forking out heaps of cash on expensive accounting software. It's truly a win-win.
