Branch events

In addition to the UK branch network, the CIOT currently operates seven international branches: Asia Pacific; Australasia; Europe; Guernsey; Hong Kong; Middle East and North Africa; and North America.

If you have a CIOT branch in your region, you are invited to meet and network with other students, International Tax Affiliates and CIOT members. Branches, as their primary function, offer the most affordable CPD training, which, although it may not seem to be relevant to the immediate ADIT exams, will assist you in progressing through your tax career.

Past papers, suggested answers and sample candidate scripts

Real questions and answers from previous exams are available to ADIT students to help with their study. Practice with previous exams helps students become familiar with the format of the exam, identify areas for further study and focus on exam technique.

A selection of answers from real candidates, who have successfully passed the exams but are not prize winners are also available. These answers can be used alongside the questions from the exam for a comprehensive understanding of the past exams and the standard necessary to pass.

Past papers, suggested answers, Examiners’ reports and sample candidate scripts can be found at

Full details of the materials permitted into each ADIT exam taking place in 2020, including permitted texts, can be found in the ADIT Syllabus.
