Hi Na,

I've not gone down this path myself but I know others who have and apparently it's really difficult to be accepted to study CTA.

My understanding is that you need to have passed ACCA completely (including optional paper P6) to be accepted to study to become a CTA.

There is also an easier (but not easy) route coming from ATT (Association of Tax Technicians).

There will be dozens of other routes in but just a warning before you go down that path that even getting accepted to study is apparently a major achievement.

good luck. If you get it the qualification is certainly right up there with ACA. (sure that you've read the other post that's on the go at the moment).

I have read the other post.

My ultimate aim has always me CTA - it has always been a matter of timing.

What are the entry requirement? - After speaking to tutors at BPP, they said the entry process was pretty straight forward...?

Hi Na,

All depends on the qualifications that you already have (don't think you ever told us but assuming BPP are saying CTA is straightforwards it must be a good one that you've already got in the bag.

To be accepted to study CTA you need to have one of the following (taken directly from the Institutes potential students page) :

The Association of Taxation Technicians (four required certificate papers)

The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales

The Institute of Chartered Accountants in Ireland

The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants

The Association of International Accountants

The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants

The Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators

The Association of Corporate Treasurers

The Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy

The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland

The Institute of Indirect Taxation

The Irish Taxation Institute

Inland Revenue FT2 or CPT examination, or successful completion of HM Revenue & Customs IDP or ITS2

HM Revenue & Customs VAT Legal and Technical Training examination.

If you are a Solicitor or Barrister or Advocate in the UK or Republic of Ireland.

If you have had three years relevant VAT experience in the employment of HM Revenue & Customs (other VAT specialist experience may be taken into consideration at the sole discretion of Council). You should contact the Education Team to discuss this before applying.

If you have completed a BA (Hons) Accounting and 5. Taxation, LLB (Hons) Business and Revenue Law, LLB (Hons) Law with Taxation or LLB (Hons) Revenue Law from Bournemouth University. If you have passed the BCL/MJur from the University of Oxford having taken two of the following three courses:

1. Dissertation on a tax topic

2. Personal Taxation

3. Corporate and Business Taxation

If you have completed the previous Intercollegiate LLM (Tax) from the University of London or the LLM (Tax) from Queen Mary or Kings (both University of London).

If you have passed the MA in Taxation at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, School of Advanced Studies, London University.

If you have completed the CIOTs Advanced Diploma in International Taxation (ADIT).

If you have completed The Chartered Insurance Institutes Advanced Diploma in Financial Planning.

If you are engaged under a training contract with an employer and are following that employers tax training programme which has been approved for this purpose by The Chartered Institute of Taxation. As a minimum this will require preparatory training and examinations in UK taxation, accounting and law of a standard at least comparable to the examinations of the Association of Taxation Technicians.

If you hold a qualification from a body which the Council of the Institute recognises as being a similar body (to the CIOT) in the European Community, the European Economic Area or Switzerland you will be considered for Confirmation of Eligibility and partial credit, at Councils discretion. Please contact the CIOT for a separate application form.

HTH,

Shaun.

Got me singing the one you are thinking about Vince. Stuck in my head now - thanks Doug!

Shaun obviously hasn't had an excel crash today, but Meding11 will be a gonner when he does.

Strange to see the OP deleted all two of her posts on this thread.

2012! How old will some of these VEIS merchants go?!!!!!!!

Yes it was strange, lucky you can get the gist of what was being asked by reading the very informative replies by Shaun, even stranger that I was reading up on the CTA syllabus just a little while before

Now I suppose I am going to be in trouble with Shaun again because once the spammer has been removed it will look like I am calling his post Veis!

Lol Doug. I left the post but removed the link :)

Yes, wonder what Nadia's problem was with this one?

And also wonder if the American poster mistook CTA for CPA?

Guess we'll never know now!


Hi Joanne,

Yep, Excel was much better behaved today... Think that it was still in fear of the threats of a good thrashing that I promised it yesterday (thinks John Cleese with a large branch thrashing his car and thats about where I was with the laptop yesterday).

I suppose thats why some sites lock old posts but I wouldn't like to do that on here (I can but I wont) as just occassionally we have been known to dig up old threads for legit reasons. Plus, from internet searches they are also some peoples first introductions to the site.



p.s. she only deleted two of her three posts???

Lol. I typed 'all' then spotted one still remained and thought I had amended it correctly, but clearly just changed just part of the sentence! Oops.

Mostly glad you don't lock posts, usually Aweb do so when it's just getting interesting and sometimes when I'm half way through typing!

Now have Doug's song in my head and that clip of John Cleese! Two classics (hmmm, maybe)



Doug - almost Veising Shaun for a second time! Dicing with death!
