Linguaskill Business (formerly BULATS) is a personalised English test which has a focus on business and is done entirely on a computer. This test can be used for recruitment or language training certification, for example. Like TOEIC, Linguaskill Business is used to assess the candidate’s ability to communicate in English within a professional setting.

A Linguaskill agent is an organization which is approved and authorized by the Cambridge English Language Assessment, to distribute and administer the exam to professionals and individuals.
