Hunt Scholarship for Solicitors and Barristers

 

The natural synergy between tax and law

Tax is grounded in law, and one of the key skills of a Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) is the ability to provide value-added tax advice which is grounded on the interpretation of legislation, case-law and precedent.

Caroline Austin, an Associate Tax Lawyer with Matheson, commented:

"Once I qualified as a solicitor, I started my studies for the Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) qualification with the Irish Tax Institute.  In the Matheson tax department and the tax industry as a whole, this is considered an essential qualification and I knew how much it would enhance my knowledge and skills. 

Each year as I was learning more through my studies with the Irish Tax Institute, I was able to put this knowledge to practical application in my role in the tax department."
