On Tuesday 29 May 2012, we announced the introduction of a global designation for tax professionals in Australia – Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA).
We made this historic announcement, with our international colleague Anthony Thomas from the Chartered Institute of Taxation in the UK, at Opera Point Marquee at Sydney’s Opera House in the presence of members of The Tax Institute.

How does this affect our members?
All our members who are eligible for the Chartered Tax Adviser status will gain credentials recognised in a number of international jurisdictions including the UK, Europe and Ireland. The new designation allows qualifying members to join a growing international network of Chartered Tax Advisers, providing international opportunities previously unattainable for Australian tax professionals.
