CTA Qualification

The Chartered Institute of Taxation (CIOT) offers the highest level tax qualification in the UK, the Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) qualification and you will find all the information you require within this section of this website.

Most typical CTA students complete the modular seven exams in two to three years. One important point to note is regardless of how quickly students may complete the examinations, the CTA qualification is not awarded until they have three years of relevant professional experience, and have applied to become a member of the Chartered Institute of Taxation.

For further information you can download our Prospectus and Syllabus.

The careers section will give you an idea of where the CTA can take you. Gaining the CTA sets you on the right path to a fulfilling career in taxation.
