CTA Associates are encouraged to progress to CTA (Fellow), through the submission of a dissertation (a minimum of 10,000 words) or a body of work. Many Associates have successfully advanced to Fellowship through this route and it is felt that this should be within the ability of all CTA Associates, who can find the time to do this. Successful completion of a dissertation will deepen the understanding of tax and provide a rewarding challenge.
The Guidance notes and rules below give a full explanation of the dissertation process. Also attached below is a list of approved titles and the rules and information on the body of work route to Fellowship.
If assistance is required with choosing a dissertation title then help can be offered.
The Scope and Implications of Section 42 Finance Act 1998 is an example of a prizewinning work submitted for Fellowship. This is available to view below.
