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 on-screen 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 are of 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 Ray 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 ever-increasing 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.
MIM President Reuben 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 qualification 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 program. 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”.
