The Association of Taxation Technicians, the oldest and largest body concerned solely with tax compliance, announced today the results for the Paper 4 – Corporate Taxation examination taken by 184 candidates on 3 July 2020. All other examinations scheduled for May 2020 sadly had to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Association accelerated its plan to introduce online exams so that at least some of the candidates who had been preparing for their exams could still do so in July. The paper was sat via a remotely invigilated system. It was pleasing to see that a high standard of performance was achieved by many candidates.
The Association President, Jeremy Coker, commenting upon the results said:
“I am delighted to congratulate all the successful candidates from the summer sitting of Corporate Taxation, especially in this extraordinary time in both their professional and personal lives. 184 candidates sat, 150 passes were achieved with 10 distinctions awarded for outstanding performance. It was the first time that the technology was used and we appreciate that it brought its own particular challenges to some candidates. We thank them, their employers and also our ATT team for being so accommodating.
I look forward to meeting as many new members as possible at one of our admission ceremonies when it becomes safe to hold these again.”
