The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka (CA Sri Lanka) unveiled the Chartered Tax Advisor course with the ambition of creating future-ready, globally savvy tax professionals.

 The newly revamped curriculum of the Chartered Tax Advisor (CTA) programme was unveiled at the Institute premises in the presence of distinguished invitees, including D.R.S. Hapuarachchi, Commissioner General of Inland Revenue, Sanjaya Bandara, President of CA Sri Lanka, Heshana Kuruppu, Vice President of CA Sri Lanka, Tishan Subasinghe, Chairman of the School of Taxation, Saman Srilal, Chairman of the Curriculum Development Committee and Prasanna Liyanage, acting Chief Executive Officer of CA Sri Lanka.

Formerly known as the Certified Tax Advisor programme, the newly revamped programme offers a comprehensive and contemporary curriculum that integrates the latest in Sri Lankan tax laws and incorporates global trends in economics, tax planning, transfer pricing, and international taxation.

Building on the fact that the CA Sri Lanka tax programme is one of the most sought-after tax qualifications in the country, the newly launched Chartered Tax Advisor programme is offered at three levels. A student who completes the CTA Awareness (first level) can qualify as a ‘Certified Tax Accountant,’ while a student who completes the CTA Professional (second level) can qualify as a ‘Certified Tax Professional.’ The third and final level of the programme is the CTA Advisory level, where a student can qualify as a “Chartered Tax Advisor” upon successfully completing the final stage.

Sanjaya Bandara said that since inception, CA Sri Lanka has been empowering the nation by offering internationally reputed qualifications, and as a world-class professional body, the Institute understands the need to remain contemporary and relevant, and hence it has taken the necessary steps to consistently revamp its qualifications in line with local and global requirements as well as market needs.

 Bandara added that CA Sri Lanka takes pride in being a powerful force in the professional domain, and the Institute is continuously driven by the vision to produce exceptional professionals. “With the launch of the new curriculum of the CTA programme, I am certain that the newly revamped CTA programme will produce future-ready, globally savvy tax specialists to lead the world of taxation.”

 The one-and-a-half-year CTA programme equips students with in-depth knowledge and skills in various aspects of taxation. It covers a wide range of tax laws, regulations, economics, and practical aspects, allowing students to become experts in the field. The newly revamped CTA programme encompasses some very critical areas relevant to the tax professional. The programme is not limited to only tax laws, but also focuses extensively on economics, governance, and ethics, apart from bringing in important practical aspects.
