Stu­dents sit their ex­ams in a record 50 ci­ties around the world

The Malta Business Weekly - - NEWS -

The June ex­ams were hosted in new ADIT lo­ca­tions in­clud­ing Barcelona, Dar es Salaam and Hanoi, and 67 per cent of all stu­dents opted for the CIOT’s on­screen exam method. We are pleased to con­firm that, of the 643 stu­dents who sat ex­ams, 459 passed at least one exam.

The ADIT qual­i­fi­ca­tion is now held by 918 tax pro­fes­sion­als in 73 coun­tries and ter­ri­to­ries.

ADIT hold­ers in Malta num­ber 44. A to­tal of 139 stu­dents

have com­pleted ADIT in the last six months and can now add the post-nom­i­nals ‘ADIT’ af­ter their name, in­clud­ing the first ADIT grad­u­ates in Bahrain, Jor­dan and Tu­nisia.

CIOT Pres­i­dent McCann said:


“I am de­lighted at the con­tin­ued achieve­ment of ADIT stu­dents across the world, and of­fer the fullest con­grat­u­la­tions on be­half of the CIOT to those who com­pleted ADIT or passed ex­ams in June.

“I ex­tend par­tic­u­lar con­grat­u­la­tions to Gareth Charles Lewis on re­ceiv­ing the first Wood Macken­zie Prize, and to the other ADIT stu­dents who have been awarded medals or prizes, and those who have achieved ADIT with the high­est dis­tinc­tion grade.

“It is also very en­cour­ag­ing to ob­serve the con­tin­ued suc­cess of those stu­dents who have cho­sen to sit the ADIT United King­dom mod­ule as part of the ACA CTA Joint Pro­gramme. Thir­teen stu­dents are now el­i­gi­ble to be­come CIOT mem­bers (sub­ject to the ex­pe­ri­ence re­quire­ments) as a re­sult of their pass­ing the June 2018 ADIT UK mod­ule.

“We are de­lighted that a record num­ber of ADIT hold­ers are now di­rectly in­volved in the pro­mo­tion and de­vel­op­ment of the ADIT qual­i­fi­ca­tion and brand, whether by sub­scrib­ing as In­ter­na­tional Tax Af­fil­i­ates of the CIOT, sup­port­ing the ADIT team at in­ter­na­tional tax events, or con­tribut­ing tes­ti­mo­ni­als in sup­port of the pos­i­tive im­pact of ADIT stud­ies for to­day’s in­ter­na­tional tax prac­ti­tioner.

“The ADIT qual­i­fi­ca­tion of­fers a unique means of de­vel­op­ing and prov­ing one’s mas­tery of a range of in­ter­na­tional tax con­cepts and prac­ti­cal skills. ADIT take-up con­tin­ues to grow around the world, ev­i­dent by the ev­er­in­creas­ing num­ber of exam lo­ca­tions.”

Stu­dents com­plet­ing the ADIT qual­i­fi­ca­tion are en­cour­aged to con­tinue their re­la­tion­ship with the CIOT by be­com­ing In­ter­na­tional Tax Af­fil­i­ates, thereby main­tain­ing a valu­able link to our global branch net­work and help­ing to en­sure that the CIOT is able to sup­port and rep­re­sent in­ter­na­tional tax pro­fes­sion­als.

But­tigieg said: “It is an honour that around 5 per­cent of the fully qual­i­fied ADIT stu­dents have qual­i­fied from Malta through the train­ing pro­vided by the Malta In­sti­tute of Man­age­ment. This


qual­i­fi­ca­tion is a pres­ti­gious one which has over the years cap­tured the global recog­ni­tion for in­ter­na­tional tax ex­perts.”

“The Malta In­sti­tute of Man­age­ment has been one of the first train­ing providers glob­ally for this qual­i­fi­ca­tions and it has been fun­da­men­tal for the Char­tered In­sti­tute of Tax­a­tion to launch­ing the Malta Vari­ant”.

“Our spe­cial thanks in this suc­cess story go to Pro­fes­sor Philip Baker and to KPMG Malta who have con­stantly sup­ported this train­ing pro­gramme. To­gether with KPMG, MIM has also a spon­sor­ship scheme which has been go­ing on for a num­ber of years”

“We have re­cently launched the pro­grammes for next year and we look for­ward for another suc­cess­ful in­take”.

There are two win­dows to sit ADIT ex­ams ev­ery year, in June and De­cem­ber. The first CIOT ADIT ex­ams were in 2004. The key ben­e­fits of gain­ing the ADIT qual­i­fi­ca­tion are that it is a global bench­mark of qual­ity and an in­de­pen­dent means of demon- strat­ing in­ter­na­tional tax knowl­edge and abil­ity.

Its porta­bil­ity is also at­trac­tive to stu­dents and em­ploy­ers and it is a demon­stra­tion of a stu­dent’s ex­per­tise in mul­ti­ple coun­tries and in­ter­na­tional tax sub­jects. The CIOT ad­min­is­ters and awards ADIT stu­dents. Those who com­plete the ADIT are en­ti­tled to put the des­ig­na­tory let­ters ‘ADIT’ af­ter their name and the op­por­tu­nity to be­come an In­ter­na­tional Tax Af­fil­i­ate of the CIOT.
