The UK Chartered Institute of Taxation (CIOT) has launched a new branch for chartered tax advisers (CTAs) within the civil services.
The branch will be based in HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC), which employs 106 CTAs, making it the eighth largest CTA employer in the country.
Speaking at the launch of the chapter, CIOT president Andrew Hubbard said CTAs within HMRC have particular requirements, such as specialised training, that are not being met by the existing branch network.
“This new branch will fill that gap,” Hubbard said.
The HMRC branch with be CIOT’s 36th branch and will be chaired by Alexandra Galloway.
