Depends how recently you sat ACCA and what options you did. If you sat the P6/Advanced Tax paper fairly recently then going straight to CTA without doing ATT would probably be fine and you would be able to get an exemption from the Awareness module.

I did ACCA with P6 then straight on CTA.

I did find the course a lot more challenging than ACCA but personally found the ATT quite basic.

CTA have changed the exam structure since I did it. I got an exemption from the Application & Interaction rather than the Awareness module which was a blessing for me.

Happy to chat if need more details .

Hi,
Thanks for your message
I did ACCA in 2013 with P6 as one of the papers, but i had to do 2 attempts to clear.
Its been more than 5 years now.
I need advice if doing ATT will help CTA, or jump to CTA directly
Thanks,

Doing ATT will help with CTA. It will also help with tax work beyond exams.

You will probably find ATT fairly basic after doing advanced tax but at least it will ease you into the CTA - there have been a lot of changes in tax law since 2013 and CTA is challenging (even more so than P6).

What is the aim of the study, will you go into industry/practice/start your own practice?

Going by your other question, you aren’t going to find answers to the optimal profit extraction by doing these exams. If you do lots of reading on here, there is loads of useful info though.

I am an ACCA CTA (or ATII on old money).

If you have done ACCA then I would say go straight into CTA. By doing ATT you would be going from a professional level qualification to a technician level and I expect covering much of the same stuff.

I thought that I knew everything about tax the day I passed my ACCA finals. When I started studying ATII it was a shocking eye-opener at how superficial the ACCA tax papers were in comparison.

Deeptim, you could have a look at the FA2018 articles on the ACCA website. If you find that you easily understand the latest rules following your previous studies, you could then consider whether doing the CTA straight away feels right for you: https://www.accaglobal.com/uk/en/student/exam-support-resources/professi...
