The Association of Taxation Technicians, the oldest and largest body concerned solely with tax compliance, announced today the results of its examination taken by 1,211 candidates on 1 and 2 November 2016. The Association reports that a high standard of performance was achieved by many candidates.
The Association President, Ralph Pettengell, commenting upon the results said:
“It gives me great pleasure to congratulate the successful candidates from the November sitting of our exams. In total candidates sat 1,693 papers and 1,163 passes were achieved with 102 distinctions awarded for exceptional performance.
Our modular system allows candidates to 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 89 candidates have now completed the examination requirements for membership and a further 238 candidates have completed the examination requirements for membership by passing the two Computer Based Examinations since the last pass list was issued in July 2016. Although the ATT CTA Tax Pathway route to qualification was only launched in June 2016, 73 Tax Pathway students sat ATT papers. Of the 89 mentioned above, 12 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 our popular admission ceremonies held at the House of Lords.”
