Does anybody know of someone who gives Business Tax Grinds in/near Galway. I have just started Part 3 and I need help - possibly on a weekly basis until May.
Firstly the ITI has a list of individuals who give grinds, some of whom would have a background in BT. Pretty reputable list so best to contact the ITI for this list.
Secondly, a few words of advice from a previous part 3 student who failed first time around and passed the repeat.
Getting grinds now is giving up before you've even started. Its tempting to be intimidated by the course and think ok ill pay someone to make me learn tax for an hour. A few grinds I could understand- But weekly grinds until May is a bit ridiculous not to mention costly. In saying that, there are certain areas of the course that students may benefit from a grind on and so it may be better to first review the core exam areas like groups, international tax, Re-orgs. For each area, have a quick read through the manual and have a detailed look/attempt at the exam questions on that topic. Then get a grind if you feel you still need a bit of help. I know I could have benefited from a grind on amalgamations but I would have gotten way more out of that grind if I'd attempted the exam Qs first.
So if i were you, Id get familiar with the key exam areas, reference my legislation really well but then focus mainly on exam papers. Slot in the grinds thereafter where needed. I dont work in Business tax nor am I accountant so I didnt have much working in my favour when sitting this paper. But I do know how hard Business Tax is and what worked for me in the repeat. As it happens I didnt get grinds, just focused on exam papers and a well referenced legislation- Felt I'd benefit more from this.
All the best.
