Suitability - Who should attend?

The ATT Qualification is designed for individuals working in taxation departments across private practice, commerce, industry and the public sector.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

Candidates can apply for a certificate of competency for every ATT written paper passed. Those who are successful in three written papers and the three Computer Based Examinations will qualify for membership of the Association of Tax Technicians subject to meeting the experience requirement.

Training Course Content

Tolley offer face-to-face classroom, online and distance learning courses for all of the ATT written papers.

The written papers

There are two compulsory core papers and candidates choose the third non-core paper based on their area of specialism. These papers are sat in May and November each year and candidates can sit any number of papers at a time. For each paper passed they are entitled to apply for a certificate of competency from the ATT.

Compulsory core papers:

  • Paper 1 – Personal Taxation; and
  • Paper 2 – Business Taxation.

Candidates choose one non-core paper from:

  • Paper 3 – Business Compliance;
  • Paper 4 – Corporate Taxation;
  • Paper 5 – IHT, Trusts & Estates; and
  • Paper 6 – VAT.

Each paper can also test elements of Accounting, Law and Ethics

The written papers are split into short form questions and between three and six longer style questions that are a mixture of computational and written questions. Each paper is 3 hours and 15 minutes in length (including 15 minutes of reading time)

The pass mark for each certificate paper is 50%. The results are released in January for the November examinations and July for the May examinations.

The Computer-Based Examinations (CBEs)

Tolley also offers face-to-face classroom, online and distance learning courses for all of the ATT CBEs.

Candidates must also sit and pass, or be exempt from, the CBEs.  There are three CBEs; one for Law, one for Accounting and one for Ethics, 

These are  one-hour online examinations of multiple choice and multiple response questions, which candidates can sit at any time during the year.

The pass mark for the CBEs is 60% (30 correct answers out of 50 questions). Candidates receive the resultson the day the Computer Based Examination is attempted.
