The Chartered Institute of Taxation


The Chartered Institute of Taxation

The Chartered Institute of Taxation is the leading body for tax professionals in the United Kingdom.

Membership is awarded on passing the Institute's examination and completing 3 years' practical UK taxation experience. Members may use the letters CTA (Chartered Tax Adviser), formerly ATII (Associate of the Taxation Institute Incorporated).

Fellowship is available following the submission of a thesis or a body of work. Fellow members may use the letters CTA(Fellow), formerly FTII, after their name to indicate fellowship.

Origin of the historical Designatory Letters ATII/FTII

When the Institute of Taxation (the forerunner of the Chartered Institute) was formed in the 1930s, it was originally proposed to used the letters ATI (Associate of the Taxation Institute) and FTI (Fellow of the Taxation Institute). When it was discovered that these letters had already been allocated to the Textiles Institute, an extra "I" was added to each set of letters, standing for "Incorporated". The Institute of Taxation was incorporated as a Company Limited by Guarantee; the Chartered Institute is incorporated by Royal Charter.
