In response to an increasing interest of our students to know more about tax and governance issues as well as the profession’s desire to have more accounting graduates who are better versed in these areas, a new Global Tax and Governance (GTG) stream has been offered since 2016-17. Students who specialized in the GTG stream are entitled to the maximum paper exemptions in taking the Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) qualifying examination offered by the Taxation Institute of Hong Kong (TIHK). As a result, students can acquire the CTA qualification by completing Paper 3 and 5 only.
TIHK CTA Qualifying Examination
Paper 1 Accounting and Finance [exempted]
Paper 2 Hong Kong Tax [exempted]
Paper 3 International Tax
Paper 4 PRC Tax [exempted]
Paper 5 Advanced Taxation Practice
Students who are interested in developing their future careers in the tax advisory field in public accounting firms or multinational companies may consider specialising in this stream.
