Work experience for license application

What could be examples for work experience for Financial accounting and accounts preparation for sole traders and partnerships please ? I am applying for the Accountants license and not sure how to put in words my experience under this section.
Thank you.

    I am not really sure what you are asking here. As I understand you have already been preparing accounts for sole traders and now you want to apply to get an AAT Accountants License? As part of the application are they asking what experience you already hold?
    Kind Regards,

    Yes thats correct. I have written my experience in the application but they are asking for breakdown.

    -Preparation of SA100 Tax Returns
    -Preparation of SA800 Tax Returns
    -Preparation of P&L Accounts
    -Preparation of Balance Sheet
    -Payroll (If applicable)
    -VAT (If applicable)

    If they are asking of the breakdown then the above information should be sufficient.

    Sorry I have never applied for such license so I do not exactly know what content they need.
    Kind Regards,
