The STEP Advanced Certificate in UK Tax for International Clients has been designed for practitioners who specialise in offshore trust and private client work involving UK tax.
Taking a practical approach to the topic, this course contains a combination of illustrative case examples and detailed explanations of complex tax rules. Through this Advanced Certificate, you will develop a thorough understanding of existing tax law and explore the changes expected to the legislation relating to the UK taxation of international clients.
Once you have successfully completed this course, you will be able to:
- Effectively represent your client’s interests and demonstrate an in-depth understanding of the tax issues involved
- Apply tax law for the practical benefit of international clients
- Efficiently respond to client tax-planning needs
- Offer your clients a more informed wealth management service
The Advanced Certificate is delivered via our online learning platform and takes five months to complete. Assessment is by way of a three-hour, closed-book examination based on a pre-seen case study, and we recommend that you spend between four and six hours a week on personal study for the five months prior to the examination.
By the end of the course, you will be able to provide clients with a higher standard of professional service and gain 30 Diploma Level credits towards STEP membership.
This Advanced Certificate is also part of the STEP Diploma in Tax and Estate Planning and although the STEP Advanced Certificate in UK Tax for International Clients can be completed as a stand-alone qualification, completing it as part of this Diploma will enable you to become a Full STEP Member and use the TEP designation after your name.
