CPD

I feel discriminated against...

Didn't find your answer?

The CIOT require I do 90 hours of CPD, the bulk of which can be reading articles without having to interact with pesky humans.

It has been pointed out to me that by the time my colleague has read a couple of pages of Taxation, I've cleared a good dozen or so.  Now we can talk about reading comprehesion (and the potential lack of it in either party) and cast shade about people who read 'too slow' or 'too fast', but all I'm really thinking is, I need to read a lot more articles than my colleague to hit my CPD hours, and I find that unfair...

Discuss :)

There must be some resource that will give you the average reading speed of an adult human. Use that to turn 90 hours into a number of articles. That is now your prescribed target for CPD, do your 90 hours in 30 hours and take a couple of days off.

Try drinking heavily before you read to level the playing field.

Worry not my confused anatid friend, you are not so bound by the number of hours. Read the updated guidance that applies from 2016: https://www.tax.org.uk/members/membership-obligations/continuing-profess...

Ooops, you and Ann are correct, CPD needed to allow me to actually know what CPD I need :)

I don’t count the hours since if I added up the hours spent on here then I would be depressed!

Luckily I don’t think you need to say what you did for CIOT so I can pretend I read Taxation.

I'm reading Taxation right now, and I'm not a member of a PB, so no official CPD requirements. (I am voluntarily developing).

For your first hours CPD, why not find out what the CIOT's CPD requirements are, and have been since 1 January 2017 (1 January 2016 if you chose to adopt them earlier), as AnnAccountant indicates. I highly recommend it to you.

Once you've done that, it might be worth reflecting on the current date and making an assessment of just how up to dtae you really are.

I've just spent 20 minutes looking up anatid and all things related.

Does that count for anything?

Hirundinid.

Like all dragons, I'm much better with birds that stay off the water.

Thanks all, my previous role had regular structured webinars/seminars so I clearly got into the habit of just declaring myself CPD'd (for the CIOT and ACCA) and not thinking too much about it. No harm done, I certainly met the new requirements.

I'm now elsewhere and the structure is less so, but thankfully I am now comfortable I easily meet the new requirements, so all's well and I consider myself duly updated :) IIRC 2015/2016 would have been around the time I became CTA, so perhaps I missed the change in all the excitement?
