Course Overview

The Advanced Taxation (ATX-UK) course focusses on how the impact of major taxes impacts financial decisions.

You will need a detailed knowledge of the ATX-UK syllabus. This includes assumed knowledge of technical areas brought forward from the TX-UK syllabus, which must be refreshed and updated for the examinable Finance Act.

ATX-UK is one of the four optional courses in the Strategic Professional level. You have to pick two of the four optional papers.

Moving into the exam, you should be aware of some key points:

  • All questions will be scenario-based
  • All questions will contain a mixture of computational and discursive elements
  • More than one topic area of the syllabus may be examined in each question
  • Questions may also involve elements of planning, and the interaction of taxes
