Qualifications to help your business


ATT Registered in Practice

If you are looking for a trusted professional to help you I am registered in practice with the oldest and largest professional body involved with UK tax compliance, the ATT. I am also a fellow of the Association

The Association is a charity and the leading professional body for those providing UK tax compliance services. Their primary charitable objective is to promote education and the study of tax administration and practice. One of their key aims is to provide an appropriate qualification for individuals who undertake tax compliance work.

Drawing on their members’ practical experience and knowledge, the ATT contributes to consultations on the development of the UK tax system and seeks to ensure that, for the general public, it is workable and as fair as possible.

ATT members are qualified by examination and practical experience. They commit to the highest standards of professional conduct and ensure that their tax knowledge is constantly kept up to date. Members may be found in private practice, commerce and industry, government and academia.

The Association has over 12,000 Fellows, members and students. Members and Fellows use the designatory letters ‘ATT’ or ‘ATT (Fellow)’ respectively.

Up to date on technical issues

Members of the ATT have to keep up prescribed amounts of continuing professional development (CPD).

Professional indemnity insurance

Under the registration in practice scheme, appropriate levels of PII cover are required to be maintained.

Reassurance for clients

Clients who know that their tax affairs are in the hands of qualified staff are reassured about the firm’s competence.
