The Association of Taxation Technicians, the oldest and largest body concerned solely with tax compliance, announced today the results of its examination taken by 1,275 candidates on 3 and 4 May 2017. The Association reports that a high standard of performance was achieved by many candidates
The Association President, Graham Batty, commenting upon the results said:
“It gives me great pleasure to congratulate the successful candidates from the May sitting of our exams. In total candidates sat 1,742 papers and 1,233 passes were achieved with 97 distinctions awarded for exceptional performance.
With our modular system candidates can study at their own pace, whether they are working towards full membership by sitting the two compulsory and one optional paper together with our two Computer Based Examinations or simply wishing to obtain one or more Certificates of Competency in their specialist area. This flexibility continues to be popular.
As a result of the examinations 101 candidates have now completed the examination requirements for membership and a further 245 candidates have completed the examination requirements for membership by passing the two Computer Based Examinations since the last pass list was issued in January 2017. Although the ATT CTA Tax Pathway route to qualification was only launched in June 2016, 225 Tax Pathway students sat ATT papers at this session and I am delighted that we now have our first student who has fully completed the ATT CTA Tax Pathway. Of the 101 mentioned above, 17 have now completed the examination requirements for the ATT element of the Tax Pathway. I look forward to meeting as many new members as possible at one of our popular admission ceremonies held at the House of Lords.”
