Exam sittings take place twice a year.  Register with the Chartered Institute of Taxation by the end of February for the May examinations and by the end of August for the November examinations.

Important notice: Coronavirus

In light of the current situation, all courses for the November 2021 ATT and CTA exams will be run as Online Tuition Live (OTL) until at least 31st July 2021. We will continue to monitor the situation to determine whether it is safe to have a gradual return to face to face courses from August 2021 onwards.
