Indirect Taxation Specialism

The Indirect Taxation Specialism, developed by ICAEW and CIOT, is designed for tax professionals specialising in indirect taxation from the start of their training.

A summary of the Indirect Taxation route to ACA and CTA

Students sit 14 of the 15 ACA modules (excluding Business Planning: Taxation), the CTA Advanced Technical examination: Domestic Indirect Taxation, plus the CTA Professional Responsibilities & Ethics Computer Based Examination. Students then choose from the CTA Advanced Technical Examination: Cross-Border Indirect Taxation or the CTA Application and Professional Skills Case Study: VAT & Other Indirect Taxes.

Students will be eligible to become an ICAEW and CIOT member on successful completion of the ACAand CTA  modules and examinations, alongside the professional development, ethics and relevant professional experience components.

This programme can be undertaken by current and new ACA students.

Do not book the CTA exams on the same date and time as any ICAEW exam entries as you will not be able to sit both papers at the same time.
