4. Professional Indemnity Insurance (PII)

All Chartered Tax Advisers and Certified Tax Advisers who are in public practice are required to be covered by PII, unless they are exempt because their liabilities have already been covered by PII obtained in their other professional capacity.

5. Senior Member Rate

As approved at the Extraordinary General Meeting in September 2020, the new “Senior Member Rate” will take effect from 2021 to replace the existing “Retired Member Rate”.

Application for Senior Member Rate is not required.  The Institute has earlier informed those members who fulfill the following requirements that they will enjoy the Senior Member Rate from 2021:

“An Affiliate, an Associate or a Fellow of the Institute shall be eligible to pay the Annual Subscription at 25% of the normal rate, if he, on 1st January of the year:
