Australia’s leading association of tax professionals, The Tax Institute, has released a suite of new education modules for tax professionals to coincide with its 10th anniversary as an education provider this month.
Initially launched in 2005 to combat skills shortages within the taxation profession, The Tax Institute is today the premier professional education provider in Australia with more than eight industry-specific courses, including the Graduate Diploma of Applied Tax Law.
Chief Executive Officer for The Tax Institute, Noel Rowland, said the Institute’s most recent educational offering recognised the evolving nature of taxation practice in Australia and internationally.
“The Graduate Diploma of Applied Tax Law is designed specifically to equip its graduates with the necessary skills to meet the challenges of the future,” Mr Rowland said.
“As Australia’s leading professional tax association, The Tax Institute is one of the only professional bodies to offer its students relevant practical experience with working taxation professionals, whilst gaining the requisite qualifications.”
The Graduate Diploma of Applied Tax Law offered at the Institute is rapidly becoming the chosen post-graduate course for tax professionals. Global professional services firm KPMG is one of a number of top-tier financial and accountancy practices that utilise the Institute’s education offerings.
As well as meeting the educational and eligibility requirements to practice within Australia, each course offered at The Tax Institute provides individuals and experienced professionals with up-to-date information, detailed understanding and practical application of tax law in Australia.
“The scope of The Tax Institute’s educational offering has certainly developed over the past 10 years, and is in direct response to the changing nature of taxation practice in Australia and around the world,” Mr Rowland said.
“The Tax Institute has worked with industry partners from government and business to ensure each course encourages a high level of thinking and greater professional development for the taxation and financial services industry.”
The Tax Institute’s education offering includes courses in Commercial Law, Taxation Law as well as Chartered Tax Advisor (CTA) Program and regular tax research sessions, designed for new graduates and working tax professionals.
The Tax Institute is also the only Australian organisation to offer the international CTA designation, which gives tax professionals greater flexibility to work globally in their field.
The Tax Institute has over 70 years’ experience as Australia’s leading educator and professional association in tax. The Tax Institute provides training and education, knowledge products and internationally recognised CTA designation that enhances the credentials of its 15,000 members.
