The Association of Taxation Technicians is a charity and the leading professional body for those providing UK tax compliance services. Our primary charitable objective is to promote education and the study of tax administration and practice. One of our key aims is to provide an appropriate qualification for individuals who undertake tax compliance work. Drawing on our members' practical experience and knowledge, we contribute to consultations on the development of the UK tax system and seek to ensure that, for the general public, it is workable and as fair as possible.
Our 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 8,300 members and Fellows, together with over 5,000 students. Members and Fellows use the practising title 'Taxation Technician' or 'Taxation Technician (Fellow)' respectively.
The vision of the Association of Taxation Technicians is to remain the leading educational body in the field of compliance tax law and practice.
The Association's charitable objects are to advance public education in, and promote the study of, the administration and practice of taxation, to achieve improvements in, and the simplification of, the administration and practice of taxation in the UK, and to prevent crime.
