To join the ACA CTA Joint Programme, students need to first register as an ACA student with ICAEW.
When students have received their ACA student number, they can register with CIOT, here, and become a student on the ACA CTA Joint Programme. Students will be asked to submit their ACA student registration communication to CIOT when registering for the Joint Programme.
Employers can continue to offer the traditional, sequential route to the CTA. If you decide to offer your employees the CTA once they become an ICAEW Chartered Accountant, they simply register with the CIOT to progress onto the CTA. More information is available here.
Students can continue to study for the ACA and CTA qualifications with their existing tuition provider. The tuition and exam schedules currently in place will not change. Tuition and study options for the Taxation of Major Corporates specialism, Owner-Managed Business specialism and the Indirect Tax specialism are detailed below.
