When it comes to gaining a first professional qualification in taxation, more people choose the ATT examination above any other. It is a proven route to a career in taxation and a degree is not necessary to gain the qualification.
Working in tax does not just mean working for an accountancy firm. Organisations currently supporting students through the ATT also include: HSBC, Shell, Oracle and Coutts. Students can earn while they learn. The ease of studying the ATT’s modular examination system favours a work-life balance and means that most students have full-time jobs. Many have financial support from their employers. It is possible to become an ATT member in 2 years, however, students can work at their own pace and sit the exams when they are ready.
