CTA exams: capital advice
Human Capital Taxes, also known as Human Capital Services (BDO), Global Employer Services (Deloitte), People Advisory Services (EY), Global Mobility Services (KPMG and Mazars), Employer Solutions and Expatriate Tax (Grant Thornton and RSM), Employer Consulting Tax (Moore Stephens) or even Human Resources Tax Services (PwC), is a growing area of taxation. As global employment mobility continues to increase, so does the need for advice for employers with internationally mobile employees, covering tax issues w
If you wonder what this means in real life look at how the advisers did not get it right when they advised the Rolling Stones on their tax matters (there’s plenty on the internet about this).
Why would you go into a career in human capital? This is an ever-growing area of business. Global employment mobility continues to increase. Coming out of the EU will only make good advisers in human capital more sought after.
Why is it good we have an exam in it? Those that work in this highly complex field have never had an exam tailored just for them. The CIOT recognises that both candidates and employers will welcome a paper that will cover a wider range of the technical areas specific to their subject.
In response to this growing demand for expertise in the taxation of global employment mobility, and in consultation with major employers, the CIOT are responding by offering a new CTA examination in Human Capital Taxes from May 2017. Papers will be available for both Advisory and Application and Interaction.
What makes the CTA Human Capital Taxes exam relevant and worthwhile? Employers seek and value qualified tax professionals because the need for advice, in areas such as rewards, for employers with internationally mobile employees is expanding. In addition, with the forthcoming UK exit from the EU, qualified tax advisers in human capital could be even more sought after.
This exam will be the only one tailored specifically for human capital taxes expertise. There are now two Advisory papers and two Application and Interaction papers, which are relevant and tailored to professionals’ day-to-day work. This resulting increased exam choice, and more relevant and valuable knowledge, is an important benefit for employers and students working in the employment area of taxes. The CTA Human Capital Taxes examination is an efficient means to ‘jump ahead’ of knowledge and expertise that might previously have only been gained by on-the-job experience.
