Kingston Smith Tax team members achieve outstanding CTA exam results

Kingston Smith is delighted to announce that two members of its Tax team, Tom Acland and Michelle Denny, have achieved outstanding results in the Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) examination, following the announcement of the November 2016 exam results this week. The CTA is recognised and respected internationally as the gold standard qualification for UK tax advisers.

Assistant Manager, Tom Acland, was awarded the top prize in the form of The Institute Medal for the candidate with the best overall performance attempting the Awareness Paper and two Advisory Papers (all at the same sitting). He was also awarded a distinction in the ‘Advisory Paper: Advanced Corporation Tax’.

Tax Manager, Michelle Denny, achieved a distinction in the ‘Advisory Paper: Taxation of Individuals’, and also passed the ‘Awareness Paper’. Her achievement is all the more remarkable as Michelle fitted her studies around being a mother to her young daughter.

Both are now fully qualified Chartered Tax Advisers.

Tim Stovold, Head of Tax, comments: “As a firm, we’re thrilled with Tom and Michelle’s fantastic achievements. Their superb efforts, along with the excellent results from other members of the team who are also now CTA qualified, mark our best ever year in terms of CTA results.”
