23 Apr 2021

We have a range of resources available for ADIT students, to support your studies and help you grow your international tax career.

Explore our list of useful resources.

Tax Adviser

You will receive free access to the online edition of Tax Adviser, the CIOT’s monthly and online journal, for the duration of your studies (with continued access should you subscribe as an International Tax Affiliate upon achievement of ADIT).

View the latest edition.

Study Advance

As an ADIT student you will receive a monthly email, with up-to-date information about the exams and other key information, as well as articles to help you with your studies.

Discounts on studying

Discounts are available on a number of international tax books and resources.

Past papers

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 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.

Branch and network events

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.
