ADIT travelled to Asia this year to join over 1,600 delegates and exhibitors at the 72nd International Fiscal Association (IFA) Annual Congress in the Gangnam district of Seoul, South Korea, from 2 to 6 September 2018.
The event offered an unrivalled opportunity to exhibit ADIT’s wide range of Asia-Pacific international tax modules to academic and professional tax leaders from across the region and beyond. ADIT was also promoted by members of the ADIT Academic Board including Prof Richard Vann and Prof Kees van Raad.
Meetings were held with representatives from a number of leading universities, as to how pursuit of the ADIT qualification can be combined with corresponding Masters level modules by students seeking both academic and professional recognition of their international tax expertise. A number of universities and law schools around the world are among the various ADIT tuition providers recognised on our website at www.adit.org.uk/courses, whose international tax programmes can be used as preparation by tax professionals who plan to sit the ADIT exams.
If you attended IFA 2018 Seoul, we hope you enjoyed the Congress and found it of benefit as well. Next year’s Congress will take place in London from 8-12 September 2019, and we look forward to having a strong CIOT and ADIT presence at our home event!
In addition to meeting with delegates at the IFA Congress in Korea, the ADIT team also participated in meetings with major international tax employers and ADIT stakeholders in Beijing, China. The CIOT has recently made great strides in developing relationships with key tax employers, academic institutions and authorities in China, and the ADIT qualification includes both a China and a Hong Kong module.
