In addition, the Certified Tax Adviser (CTA) Qualifying Examination will be renamed as “Chartered Tax Adviser Qualifying Examination”, and the current AEP will also be renamed as “Chartered Tax Adviser Accredited Employer Programme”.
The current AEP will expire on 31 December 2020 and we would like to invite all AE to renew your registration for a further term of five years from 1 January 2021 to 31 December 2025.
Under AEP, the Institute will provide training platforms to the AE in the areas of technical issues and experience sharing in their daily work engagements. Benefits to you as an AE include:
– Participating in professional development trainings and seminars organised by the Institute and enjoying a special rate.
