    Just write down the steps that you took to write the report - I think that I put "The AAT case study "Case Study Name" was reviewed by my name.

    The "payroll" function was identified as a key area for improvement.

    Research was carried out using reference books and the internet. A ful list of resources can be found in appendix X "Bibliography"

    Hope that helps

    You don't need to write much for this section. Literally just write what you did to get started on your project as a few bullet points.

    The official notes said the methodology section should be about half a page and so far i havnt used any references, what sort of references did u use?

    Methodololgy is just the "method" that you used to write the report i.e the steps you took.

    For my bibliography I listed all the websites that I visited in the course of my research e.g. HMRC, DWP, AAT study zone, computerised accounts software websites (Sage, Quickbooks and so on)
