International Tax Affiliates benefit from an annual subscription fee of £150, or a six-month fee of £75 for new Affiliates who subscribe between 1 July and 31 December. The fees are significantly cheaper than the equivalent subscription fees for CIOT membership, in recognition of the fact that International Tax Affiliates a global community and, in many cases, already subscribe as members of a local professional body.
Yes, subscriptions related to membership of professional bodies when related to your employment or profession are tax deductible in the UK.
If you are outside the UK, the tax deductibility of the subscription fee will depend on local legislation.
Copies of CIOT handbooks are available from the Membership Team. Please contact membership [at] ciot.org.uk for further details about handbook availability.
Yes. A CPD form is sent out with the annual subscription renewal notification. The CIOT undertakes an annual, randomised CPD check, and Affiliates must submit their records when requested. Affiliates are strongly advised to update their CPD records regularly, and to retain them for a minimum three-year period. CPD forms are available to download here.
You can find more information about the CPD requirement for Affiliates here.
No, the invitation to become an Affiliate is not time limited. You can apply whenever you want. But remaining part of the CIOT after the completion of your ADIT studies will only be possible if you become an Affiliate.
All ADIT students who successfully complete the qualification during each exam session, as well as the award winners, are invited to the CIOT Admission Ceremony. Those who attend are awarded a certificate as an ADIT Graduate or Affiliate. Those who do not attend are sent the certificate in the post. Attendance at the Ceremony is free to the Graduate or Affiliate, plus one guest. Additional guests are welcome, space permitting, at an additional cost.
You can apply by completing and returning the Affiliate application form, available here.
