Entry requirements

Chartered Tax Consultant (CTC™) is open to the following:

  • Members of Chartered Accountants Ireland
  • Institute student members who have successfully completed CAP 2

  • Fully qualified members of ACCA, CIMA, ICAS and ICAEW


Members of ACA, ACCA, CIMA, ICAS and ICAEW who are holders of another, recognised tax qualification (from The Institute of Tax or CIOT) may apply for exemptions from Applied Tax and progress directly to the final stage of the programme, Integrated Tax.

Please note that taking the tax elective within your accountancy qualification does not grant exemptions.

Those who have completed the Chartered Accountants Ireland Diploma in Taxation will be exempt from class attendance and assignments of the Applied Tax stage. Participants will be required to sit and pass Applied Tax before processing to the Integrated Tax stage.

New for 2018 entry: if you are a Chartered Accountant and holder of part 2 AITI, you may be eligible for an exemption from Applied Tax and proceed directly to Integrated Tax. 

Contact Amy to find out more about any of these exemptions.
