ATT CTA Tax Pathway

In a dynamic, fast-moving industry, the demand for highly-qualified tax professionals has never been higher.  The Tax Pathway provides a streamlined and efficient route to joining the elite of tax professionals.

The Tax Pathway is a route to membership of both the Association of Taxation Technicians and the Chartered Institute of Taxation and brings together the exceptional tax compliance knowledge delivered by the ATT qualification with the CTA, the gold standard of quality for tax professionals. 

The Tax Pathway enables students to study and gain both the ATT and CTA qualifications. This route offers a wider variety of paper options than before, without reducing the quality and rigour of the qualifications. Ideal for both new students and current ATT students.
