The Advanced Diploma in International Taxation (ADIT) awards for achievement were presented at the Admissions Ceremony at the Drapers’ Hall in the City of London on 11 November 2010.
The awards are for the highest mark attained in each of the three papers required for the qualification:
- The Heather Self Medal was won by Sushma Gupta of London.
- The International Fiscal Association Prize was won by Amanda Sarah North of London.
- The Worshipful Company of Tax Advisers Medal was won by Suzanne Gillian Ross of Belfast.
Nine new ADIT Graduates attended the ceremony to receive their ADIT Diploma certificates, coming from as far away as Pakistan.
ADIT is a global qualification with more than 1000 students, graduates and affiliates in over 70 counties worldwide. The qualification is the global benchmark for international tax professionals and sets the standard for those who work in the industry.
There are now eight different tax jurisdictions covered by the various option papers: EC, USA, China, UK, Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore and Malta. As well as the recently launched Transfer Pricing option paper.
The CIOT President, Vincent Oratore, said:
“The award winners and all the candidates should be rightly proud of their success in passing papers for a demanding international qualification. Conducting cross border business demands a high level of competence in international tax matters, which is a mark of quality provided by the ADIT qualification. I am delighted to congratulate all who have passed and we hope to welcome those who are not existing members of the CIOT as International Affiliates of The Chartered Institute of Taxation in due course.”
