ADIT (Advanced Diploma in International Taxation)

Has anyone heard of it or done it?

Didn't find your answer?

Search AccountingWEB

Hello all,

I was wondering if anyone here has heard of the above diploma? It's being promoted by CIOT and ACCA and looks interesting but does it actually give you anything in the way of more money at the end of the month or is it the tax equivalent of a diploma in "Media Studies"? (I doubt it judging by who is promoting it)

I'm an ACCA and have one exam left on ATT to complete so any thoughts would be appreciated,

Thanks.

Nice to have but, if you're looking at it as a means to earn more money, you probably need to look at your current client base and see what potential is there. They're your most likely market.

Alternatively, consider whether there's mileage in projecting yourself as a consultant to other firms, either locally or further afield.

I'm in exam mode so may just knock it off for the additional knowledge. The consultant idea is a good one.

If you had done your own research and checked the CIOT website, you would know that the 'I' in 'ADIT' refers to International, so I doubt it this is for you, at least at this stage of your career.

Yes I missed that out but the question is still valid, had you heard of it? Clearly not or you wouldn't have had to look it up on the CIOT website.

He didn't say he had to.

He implied that you didn't.

So I typed the question and missed that out. But as I said the question is still valid, has anyone heard of it or done it? Clearly not.

I've heard of it. But it's of no interest to me.

The advice I gave you also stands. Can you get the business ? Only you can decide.

I've heard of it and know of at least three people who have it. Even considered it myself.

I don't think it is something you can just dash off to get some more letters. It requires rather more than that and if you're not working in the international field is probably not something to just do unless you are aiming to specialise

Thanks, it's something I've always been interested in and I would expect it's not a quick result.

I haven't had to look it up on the CIOT website. I know what it is, and if you're still doing ATT you're not ready for it. Until, and unless, you get through CTA, it'[s not even something you should even be considering.

Also bear in mind some of the training suggested (in place of a formal course of study) are lectures from Taxation MSc/LLM courses., and you've not done any proper professional exams yet.

Did you bother reading the prospectus and 5h1t before posting?

I am a qualified ACCA and this was recommended to me by ACCA so maybe you should read and possibly your name is appropriate.

As I say, you haven't done any proper professional exams yet. Maybe once you've done CTA you'll be able to assess your competence to take on ADIT, and your need for it.

You don't consider ACCA as professional exams? All I was trying to do was see if someone on here had done the ADIT course to discuss it, from the responses I've received I would assume this is the wrong forum to ask.

I said "proper" professional exams. ACA/ACCA is a walk in the park., quite frankly.

You seem to know it all though. What do you think?

I've heard of it and know people who have done it in Big 4/Top 10 land but those people were international tax specialists not general practitioners or even 'just' tax specialists. The problem with doing this sort of thing, unless you do intend to specialise in international tax, is that is is of little relevance and anything you learn will swiftly become forgotten - a lot of effort for no real reward except for a few more letters after your name.

I doubt anyone recruiting for an international tax role would be looking for this qualification.

I was always asked international tax questions at the interview instead.
