The CTA (Chartered Tax Adviser) is one of the most respected tax qualifications in the world. Globally recognised, it's ideal for taxation professionals who wish to deepen their understanding of the sector and advance their careers.

Develop your organisation’s expertise

As the gold standard of taxation education, the CTA will equip your employees with the skills and the knowledge to successfully navigate an increasingly sophisticated tax system. Once your employees achieve this qualification, they will be entitled to put the prestigious designatory letters CTA next to their names.

Flexible pathways

There is no 'one size fits all approach' when it comes to studying the CTA: your employees have the freedom to choose a route that's right for them. They can continue working full-time or part-time while working towards the qualification, although we strongly recommend that they take some study leave, especially before the examinations.
