ACCA Corporate and Business Law (F4) Level 6

While studying ACCA Corporate & Business Law (F4), you will investigate the law as it relates to business, in particular the law of contract, tort and employment, the formation, management and regulation of companies, including the legal implications relating to those companies in difficulty, and an overview of governance and ethics.


ACCA has a high global reputation, which continues to grow as its qualifications attract large numbers of new students each year, highlighting the attraction of accountancy as the basis for a successful career. ACCA will provide you with skills and knowledge relevant to any business, which means you are free to choose which type of accountancy role and organisation you want to work for. There is a strong focus on professional values, ethics and governance.


ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) is the most recognised international accountancy body in the world. More people qualify locally with ACCA than with any other international accountancy body. Members, who are known as Chartered Certified Accountants, are employed in industry, financial services, and the public sector or in public practice.

    Important: You have 10 years from your date of registration to complete the ACCA exams. For more information, visit ACCA Time Limits.

    This will involve lectures, discussions and practical work. There will be regular progress tests during the course, followed by an intensive revision day at the end of each module.

  • How will I be assessed?

    The tutor will record your progress and provide informal, regular, feedback throughout the course. At the end of your study programme you will need to sit the exam for each ACCA paper for which you enrolled. The pass mark is 50%. Exams will be held by ACCA in December and June each year.

    Passing the F4 paper will enhance your CV and is also a stepping stone towards the ACCA Professional Qualification.
