ICAS and the CIOT work in partnership to allow students to gain membership of the two bodies in as little as three and a half years. The Joint Programme allows students to specialise in one of two areas of tax.
In England & Wales the CTA elements of the programme will be delivered by Tolley Exam Training. We have a specific agreement in place with ICAS to jointly deliver the CTA elements for Scotland.
Our CTA course dates and prices will help you to plan ahead and organise your schedule.

In England & Wales the CTA elements of the programme will be delivered by Tolley Exam Training. ICAS and Tolley Exam Training have a specific agreement in place to jointly deliver the CTA elements in Scotland. The learning materials and support for the CTA papers will be provided by Tolley Exam Training and will be delivered by ICAS or Tolley Exam Training tutors online or at centres across Scotland.
One of the reasons for our students’ excellent exam results is the wide range of study options that we offer, including a Guaranteed Pass Scheme, Online Tuition Live and Distance Learning options.
Online Support Sessions
Our Online Support Sessions are bite-size recordings from our expert tutors, providing you with overviews on key topics within the syllabus and question debriefs. These are ideal if you need to recap on some areas, or understand in more detail some of the trickier topics found within your paper.
