ADIT – FAQ’s

1. Is ADIT right for me?
ADIT, the international tax credential awarded by the UK’s Chartered Institute of Taxation, is an advanced level designation in cross-border tax. It provides the robust foundation in international tax that today’s global tax professional needs to stand out from the crowd.

It is a challenging qualification requiring a significant time commitment, with 3 – 4 months of part-time studying generally required in advance of sitting an exam. The exam structure is flexible to accommodate studying while working.

To learn about all the advantages of achieving ADIT, visit https://www.tax.org.uk/adit-international-tax/why-do-adit.

Our tutors are happy to chat with you about ADIT to help you decide if it’s right for you, please fill in our contact form or email us at info@extrataxtraining.com.

2. What do I need to become ADIT qualified?
To complete ADIT, you must pass the Principles of International Taxation exam and any two modules from the range of optional thematic or jurisdiction modules, or substitute an extended essay for one of the optional modules.

You can achieve a standalone certificate by passing the Principles of International Taxation paper or one of the thematic options, including Transfer Pricing.

4. Do you offer classroom training?

We’re currently focusing on delivering top-class online ADIT training programmes by creating virtual classrooms through live-streaming webinars and other digital platforms. But we do plan to expand into offering offline classroom training courses.

We want to hear from you with suggestions for class locations and can provide classroom-based training in a city in the UK or Ireland where we have 8 or more participants in the class. We’re also seeking to develop our class locations globally and are willing to offer seminars in cities worldwide where we have 12 or more participants. Please use our contact form to register your interest in attending classes in a particular city or region.

5. How will the online training work?
You will receive an invite to participate in live webinars where tutors will combine lecture-style tutorials with question practice. You will be able to see, hear and engage with the tutor.

The numbers on each webinar will be restricted to 10 to facilitate discussions. You’ll be encouraged to ask questions by speaking or typing them.

We will schedule the webinars to maximise live attendance. Recordings will be available for times when it isn’t possible for you to join the live sessions.

You’ll also have email access to tutors for ongoing support plus be able to avail of up to 5 hours one-to-one tuition time to help your studies. Our goal is to remove the ‘distance’ from distance-learning by creating a supportive community of students and tutors to share your ADIT journey and grow your professional network.

6. Are there any discounts available?
For 2020 exam sittings, we are offering introductory pricing equivalent to reductions of up to 25% on our standard pricing. To secure these prices, book by 31 January for June 2020 sittings and 30 June for December 2020 sittings.

In addition to our attractive introductory pricing, we are offering the following discounts:
• 5% for a student booking 2 or more modules for 2020 exam sittings in the same online booking
• 15% for employers making 5 or more bookings for modules / students for the core online packages for the 2020 exam sittings

7. What textbooks or training materials are used for the courses?
For Principles of International Taxation and Transfer Pricing, we use published textbooks by recognised experts. These are included in the core training packages.

For the UK jurisdiction option, the core training packages include our own study manual specially written for Module 2.09 UK.

Please note that we do not provide copies of the permitted texts as part of the study materials. You should source your own copies to use in your studies and bring into the exam. Download the 2020 ADIT Syllabus for full lists of permitted texts for each module and suggestions on where to buy them.

8. Do you offer any extra study support?
Yes, we have a tailored approach to ADIT training and don’t believe that ‘one-size fits all’. We look to build relationships with our students and their employers to listen to their ADIT training requirements.

Perhaps you work in niche area of international tax and would like introductory courses before you join our core training packages? Maybe there’s a fundamental part of the syllabus that you’re struggling to grasp and you’d like some extra one-to-one support? This is where our can-do attitude comes into play to provide the solutions to your needs.

9. What’s your pass rate?
As a new ADIT training provider, we don’t yet have exam pass rates to share with you. We pledge to provide you with a high quality learning experience in a supportive environment designed to help you succeed.

We’re not going to measure our achievements solely on our pass rates – we’ll measure them by your level of satisfaction, both in terms of how we’ve helped you prepare for the exams and how we’ve improved your overall knowledge & understanding of international tax.

10. Can you guarantee that I’ll pass the exam?
We don’t offer any guaranteed pass options as we don’t believe in making promises that we can’t keep, or which come with a list of caveats. We care about our students and promise to deliver an engaging and informative learning experience. We believe that your hard work and dedication matched with our ADIT training methods make a winning combination.

If you don’t pass on your first attempt, we’ll be here to discuss your learning needs to help you succeed the next time. Our tailored approach to exam support means that we can work with you to find a solution to get you back on track for ADIT success.

11. Are you planning to offer training courses for any of the other ADIT modules?
We want to expand into delivering training for certain other ADIT modules, including the EU direct tax and VAT thematic options – but will only do so when we are confident that we can maintain our high standards, engaging tutors who are subject-matter experts with a passion for sharing their knowledge.
