Qualifying Examination Programme (QEP)

The Institute has cooperated with other local education institutions in providing various postgraduate programmes, preparing students for taking the Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) Qualifying Examination and enriching their tax knowledge.


  • Professional Diploma in Tax Advisory (Full programme)

The Programme was first revamped in 2012 to become the Continuing Education Diploma in Tax Advisory. After several years of success, the Programme was further restructured and renamed as “Professional Diploma in Tax Advisory” to enrich students’ knowledge in taxation and to develop their careers in the field of professional tax advisory. Successful completion of this 10-month program will entitle the students, who have the qualifying tax experience, to become members of the Institute. They will also get exemptions from the Hong Kong Tax Paper and International Tax Paper of the Institute’s CTA Examination.

The enrollment deadline for the 2024 intake of this Programme is 4 December 2024. The 2023 intake will commence in mid-January 2024.

In 2023, the Programme has offered an option for people who only wish to take a specific module course instead of completing the full programme.  

1. International Tax Advisory (Flyer: )

The CPD course in International Tax Advisory enables students to understand why international double taxation typically arises and how it could be avoided.  It aims to develop participants’ technical competencies in providing advisory services in international tax planning.  Upon completion of this course, students should be able to identify common types of anti-avoidance provisions designed to counter specified forms of international tax planning and to communicate tax planning issues effectively in writing and verbally.
