Tax Articles

The South African Institute of Tax Professionals (SAIT) together with the FASSET SETA have launched a new learnership opportunity for candidates to qualify as a General Tax Professional (NQF level 8). SAIT is also in the process of registering this learnership to allow learners in future to qualify as a Chartered Tax Advisor, which is an internationally recognised qualification.

The qualification involves the following stages:

  1. The knowledge component ­where a candidate must complete a Taxation Honours, Higher Diploma in Taxation or equivalent and thereafter write a knowledge competency assessment;
  2. Practical skills ­ this can be attained at certain tertiary institutions or by an accredited workplace training provider;
  3. Workplace experience ­ this is like a “tax articles” which involves the learners completing a training contract with an accredited workplace training provider; and
  4. A final integrated assessment in the form of a national qualifying exam must be passed.

The Tax House is at the forefront of this initiative and is in the process of applying for and obtaining accreditation as a practical skills and workplace training provider and will appoint the first trainees / learners in 2017.
