From companies with offices around the world, to social media and virtual conferences, these days your professional world is bigger than ever before. And a global profession calls for an internationally recognised qualification.
“In an increasingly globalised world, your professional reputation is no longer confined by geography. Building a career on a well-recognised designation is so important,” said Alexandra Wilson, Executive General Manager, The Tax Institute Higher Education.
“The Chartered Tax Adviser [CTA] designation is recognised across borders. That makes it a serious benefit if you’re forging an international career in tax, whether it’s helping you be noticed by a large firm with a global presence, or building your reputation as a thought leader and trusted adviser in tax, at home and abroad.”
Though it originated with the Chartered Institute of Taxation in the UK, the CTA designation can now also be achieved in Ireland, Australia and, as of this year, Hong Kong.
In Australia, The Tax Institute is the only organisation licensed to award the CTA designation.
From your clients in Sydney to colleagues in London, gaining a CTA designation is recognition that you have what it takes to offer expert tax insight across jurisdictions. The full program offered in Australia enhances knowledge and develops important skills including:
If your tax career is already well underway, and you have already completed study at another institution, you may be eligible for recognition of prior learning, which means you need less time to get to the final stage of the journey - CTA3 Advisory.
“The course to become a CTA is rigorous and practical. It has been developed to ensure that those who successfully gain the designation will have the technical skill and confidence to tackle a wide array of real-life tax issues,” explained Alexandra.
“So, having the designation is the first sign to your peers and employers, that you are an accomplished tax professional, dedicated to adding real value to your clients.”
