Why should you study this with us

I’ve implemented the following in the design and videos of the CTA Tax courses for you:


Understanding rather than memorising theory… I explain WHY the specific section/s appear in the Tax Acts. This will save you a lot of time going forward… and I know that every second is worth gold in your CTA year! (Remember that you’ll have all the ‘theory’ in your open books anyway… so your application is going to be examined… not your memory!)


Right from the start, I guide you through how to prepare YOUR COPY of the Tax Act that YOU ARE ALLOWED TO TAKE INTO THE EXAMS! (and into the final ITC exam!). I call this your personal “Weapon Of Mass Mark Accumulation” (WOMMA) – need I say more?


I realise that students struggle with some topics from their undergraduate studies, so I’ve added revision content as well. The beauty is that you get to control what you revise, and what you don’t. You can go back where you need, or stick to the CTA content if that’s all you need.

Questions and exam technique

Once we are all comfortable with the relevant sections of the Act (as explained in each video), I move into the application of this knowledge – generally by using a basic example and/or examples that appear in the study guides.

Discussion forums

I’m available all year on our discussion forums to answer your queries, motivate you… and yes… to TAX YOU! (excuse the pun!) by checking up on your progress - and lend a helping hand when needed!

I want you to have a great foundation for your future studies, and help you develop a life-long knowledge of working with Tax. Remember, the Tax Act is updated all the time… so your CTA knowledge won’t last you forever! You’ll need to learn how to make sense of the changes as they happen in the future.
