What are the changes to CPA Australia Taxation?
There are now 2 taxation subjects being offered in the CPA Program:
(i) Australia Taxation and
(ii) Australia Taxation – Advanced.
If you haven’t studied taxation before, you should enrol in Australia Taxation (see the subject outline here). If you have studied taxation previously and want to learn more complex topics (and potentially become a registered tax agent with the Tax Practitioners Board), then you should enrol in Australia Taxation – Advanced (see the subject outline here). CPA have also advised that students can take both taxation subjects as part of the CPA Program, so you can build upon your tax knowledge across two ‘electives’.
Australia Taxation seems to reflect the previous study resource called ‘Supplementary Resource – Taxation’, which has 11 modules.
Australia Taxation – Advanced is based on the ‘Advanced Taxation’ study guide from Semester 2, 2018 (available from the files section of the Australia Taxation Facebook group here) and has 10 modules.
