Chartered Tax Consultant (CTC™) is a professional tax qualification developed exclusively for Chartered Accountants. Launched in 2011, the programme continues to evolve in line with participants and the latest changes within the industry to generate competent, creative and confident tax professionals.

At its core is legislation: we will teach you the practical skills to confidently read, interpret, analyse and apply legislation to research and to communicate to key tax professionals and clients.

The programme is one year in full and broken into two stages: Applied Tax (covering the tax heads) and Integrated Tax (covering the interactions of these taxes with each other and other areas of business).
