What ADIT people say

“Having worked in International Tax for a few years, I thought it would be good to strengthen, formulate and progress my understanding further by enrolling and completing the ADIT examinations. I decided with the background that I had in the International Tax area that I would complete the examinations in one sitting, this was challenging, hard work and enabled a clearer understanding of the some of the principals of International tax which I believe were helpful inpractice. I would recommend those seriously wanting to pursue a career in this field to undertake this study.”
