The Chartered Institute of Taxation (CIOT) and ICAS (The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland) have unveiled a new joint qualification in accountancy and tax.
The new joint programme will allow students to study both the CA (chartered accountant) and CTA (chartered tax adviser) qualifications at the same time.
Available from September 2019, student s who undertake the joint programme will be able to fast track their studies and become a specialist in tax and accountancy in around three years.
CIOT CEO, Peter Fanning, said: “Collaborating on the CA CTA programme is the logical next step in a growing relationship between CIOT and ICAS. The programme offers students and their employers another path to chartered status in both tax and accounting with the highest professional standards in both disciplines.”
