    Does anyone have AITI Part 2 GRINDS Notes? Thanks

    Does anyone have information on what the recent pass rates have been in these various levels of the CTA AITI qualification or better still for each paper?

    I found some info up to summer 2010 earlier in the thread but that's getting quiet old now.

    I would say institute will post it online. I have seen them for more recent years online. Did many pass today?

    Does anyone here have any feedback on Chartered Accountants Ireland Diploma in tax. Is it a good course, are lecturers good?? I am thinking of doing it but it is very expensive and just want to justify paying it. It's attracting me as it focuses more on the practical aspects of preparing calulations and using the different tax returns and less on the law side side of tax.

    AITI is a more recognised qualification than ICAI for tax.


  • Registered Users Posts: 36 The world over


    I appreciate that Pawwed but I would just like to know the quality of the Diploma in Tax course with the ICAI and some feedback on same.

    Hi everyone, this question has probably been asked many times but I'm currently thinking of registering for AITI tax exams. I'm ACCA qualified so exempt from Part 1 problem is I'll be doing these at my own expense so will only have max 2/3 weeks including week of exams for study leave. is it possible to get through part two studying evenings/weekends. Think I'd be able to average 15-20 hrs a week between here and April. Not working in tax working in industry as a financial accountant (Qualified in practice, top 5/6 audit). Worried that i'll be left with nothing to show for my effort at the end.. maybe there is some masters/course I could benefit more from? Just trying to bolster my CV. Any advise appreciated. Thanks

    Do you want to work in tax?


  • Registered Users Posts: 42 crazylikeme


    I am an ACCA and always worked in accounting in industry. I have a senior finance role and did AITI 2 years ago. I found it gave me a very good understanding of tax which is required in my job, perhaps not to the extent of income tax ( but then again this is helpful in my personal life and my friends too, who often come to me for planning ideas) It made me confident where taxation is concerned and currently I am working on tax restructure of our entities. It is definitely well worth doing. There is this myth you need to work in tax for this to be benefit, but it is not correct. In many multinational companies this is a very desired qualification not to mention very lucrative career to be had. I would say go for it. You have nothing to lose and if anything make yourself more marketable in the industry world, there is not that many AITIs in the industry as majority is in practice, and large firms seek this expertise more and more in order to save fees that these practices charge, so go for it!!! Study often and every day to get head start. The exams are not as hard as the ACCA exams, and you only have 8 to go through. Good luck!!!
    I think being experienced qualified accountant with tax will always be a plus in industry!!

    Crazylike me thanks for the detailed response.. I think its what I wanted to hear! I'm sort of the opinion I don't have too much to lose. Pawwed Rig I plan to stay in industry but not sure about promotion opportunities within my current company may also have to relocate locations for personal reasons in the next few years so like I said trying to add to the CV.


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Home & Garden Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 22,355 CMod ✭✭✭✭Pawwed Rig


    Sure and I agree that it is not a bad qualification to have. I wouldn't agree it is easier than ACCA though but I guess that depends on your aptitude and what you are good at.
    Is there anything more relevant that you could take? Thinking CFA or similar

    20 hours a week for AITI would have you in good stead. I would be starting as early as possible though and the year 1 exemption can be a bit of a mixed blessing.

    Hey

    Posted here recently about my plan to register for the AITI exams. Took the plunge and registered for the part 2 winter course (exempt for Part 1 as I am ACCA qualified).

    Anyways, I have a question in relation to the online lectures. Due to family and work commitments, I may miss some of the weekend lectures but are the online lectures a good substitute?

    Obviously I will try and attend as many as possible but hoping that the online lectures will be of help when needed.

    Cheers,
    Crebel81

    It should be the same lecture

    Thanks for your input.

    I was aware of that but I guess the difference is you don't get to ask questions or have any input when watching online.

    Any other thoughts welcome.

    You can submit questions via email but ime the Institute are pretty poor at passing them on to the lecturer (or else the lecturers are poor at responding).
    There is a facility via Blackboard that could be used but I found it to be under utilised.
    Try to get to as many as possible and maybe note your queries and ask at a lecture you get to.
    Or else post your questions here and let the boardsies answer. :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 287 ✭✭crebel81


    Appreciate your response.

    Yes I will try and get to as many as I can. I know AITI is a step up but I studied ACCA through home study only and found it ok, so I wont worry too much.

    Thanks

    can anyone provide recent part 3 pass rates?ha

    Im curious if it there has been any change in recent years or are they more or less the same?

    I heard that there wasnt always an assignment at part 3 and thats only been introduced in recent years. Im not sure how much truth there is to that though.

    i had a look for pass rates on AITI website but i could not find anything

    Hi All, I'm considering signing up for the winter course. Recently qualified as ACCA so get exempt from stage 1. I sat the advanced taxation exam. Got in the low 60's, just wondering how much of a step up is it from the ACCA's?


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Home & Garden Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 22,355 CMod ✭✭✭✭Pawwed Rig


    Similar standard imo

    Hello All,
    Does the AITI course provide you with the knowledge to provide detailed consultancy and efficient tax planning as opposed to compliance?


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Home & Garden Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 22,355 CMod ✭✭✭✭Pawwed Rig


    Hello All,
    Does the AITI course provide you with the knowledge to provide detailed consultancy and efficient tax planning as opposed to compliance?

    It points you in the right direction and gives you the tools to find the answers. It does not (and cannot) cover everything. There are guys in tax 20 years who still struggle with some aspects.


  • Registered Users Posts: 325 ✭✭tanit


    Does anyone know how it compares with Chartered Tax Consultant from Chartered Accountants?

    Is the syllabus the same or approximately the same? Once you are qualified you have more or less the same knowledge? Are exams similar?

    Thanks for the help :)

    Hi all, would anyone that has the Part 2 timetable for this year be willing to share it ? I'm repeating and don't really want to spend another thousand especially after Christmas 😂.
