F1 Syllabus Information


Aim of the syllabus

F1 covers the regulation and preparation of financial statements and how the information contained in them can be used. It provides the competencies required to produce financial statements for both individual entities and groups using appropriate international financial reporting standards. It also gives insight into how to effectively source and manage cash and working capital, which are essential for both the survival and success of organisations. The final part focuses on the basic principles and application of business taxation. The competencies gained from F1 form the basis for developing further insights into producing and analysing complex group accounts (covered in F2) and formulating and implementing financial strategy (covered in F3).

Topics covered

  • Regulatory environment for financial reporting and corporate governance (10%)
  • Financial accounting and reporting (45%)
  • Management of working capital, cash and sources of short-term finance (20%)

  • You must complete all 5 papers in the Certificate Level before progressing on to the CIMA Professional Qualification
  • AAT qualified students will be exempt from the Certificate Level and proceed straight to the Operational Level
