On 20 July 2023, the Chartered Institute of Taxation and the Association of Taxation Technicians announced the results from their examinations taken at the May 2023 exam session.

810 CTA candidates sat exams, with a further 393 candidates who sat one or more papers on the ACA CTA Joint Programme (with ICAEW) and 42 candidates who sat a paper on the CA CTA Joint Programme (with ICAS). 838 ATT candidates sat exams in May 2023 and 1,010 ATT CTA Tax Pathway candidates sat a combination of ATT and CTA papers.

The Institute President Gary Ashford commenting on the results said: ‘I would like to offer my heartfelt congratulations to those candidates who have passed all of the necessary exams for CIOT membership, as well as those who have made progress towards becoming a Chartered Tax Adviser after passing one or more papers at the May 2023 examination session. They should be really proud of their hard work, dedication and effort. It has paid off.

‘330 candidates have now successfully completed all of the CTA examinations and we very much look forward to welcoming them as members of the Institute in the near future. Included in this figure are 80 candidates who were on the ACA CTA Joint Programme, 14 candidates who were on the CA CTA Joint Programme and 90 candidates who have now fully completed the ATT CTA Tax Pathway by passing the CTA element.

‘We look forward to welcoming those new members into the Institute at the next Admission Ceremony.’

The Association President, Simon Groom, commenting upon the results said: ‘I am delighted to congratulate all the successful candidates from the May sitting of our exams. In total, 838 ATT candidates and 556 ATT CTA Tax Pathway candidates sat 1,907 papers and 432 passes were achieved. 93 distinctions were awarded to candidates for outstanding performance. ‘With my background in tax education, I am well aware of the many hours of study required to sit our examinations and I commend all the candidates for putting in the work necessary to achieve success.

‘The ATT’s modular system means that candidates can study at their own pace, within the five-year registration period, whether they are working towards full membership or simply wishing to obtain one or more Certificates of Competency in their specialist area.

‘I look forward to meeting the candidates who take up membership at our next Admission’s Ceremony.’
