Become an ICAS Tax Professional

The ICAS Tax Professional (ITP) qualification has been created to meet the changing demands and needs of employers and students in the field of taxation.

Both the structure and the syllabus content have been developed in consultation with tax practices, with the key aim of providing the relevant tax skills and knowledge required of a tax professional working in a varied client environment. Completion of the qualification will lead to the award of the designatory letters 'ITP'.

Develop your tax career

ITP is relevant for:

  • tax professionals developing their knowledge and skills in the initial stages of their tax career
  • those who have been working in tax for some time and wish to consolidate their knowledge and skills.
