APPLICATIONS FOR 2014 INTAKE NOW OPEN
The International Institute for Tax & Finance (IITF), together with Thomas Jefferson School of Law (TJSL), San Diego, California, USA offers its 6th year of the Higher Diploma in Tax for the South African tax practitioner.
What’s new in 2014?
The HDip Tax saw a radical overview in 2013, and a first for this kind of course. In 2014 we are at it again! The IITF has added modules on International Taxation and Corporate Taxation and have also expanded VAT and CGT to their own subjects for the Higher Diploma in Taxation. This makes the IITF’s HDip the most rounded tax qualification in South Africa for preeminent tax practitioners.
The course has been broken up into 8 individual Subjects. The Subjects are divided up as follows:
- GROSS INCOME
- VALUE ADDED TAX
- GENERAL DEDUCTIONS
- CAPITAL GAINS TAX
- SPECIAL DEDUCTIONS, ASSESSED LOSSES AND CAPITAL ALLOWANCES
- CORPORATE TAXATION
- SPECIALISED TOPICS
- INTERNATIONAL TAXATION
Students will complete 2 subjects per semester, with an exam on end each subject at the each of the semester. The IITF have also done away with the dissertation. As research is an extremely important part of taxation, IITF adopts a more practical solution in requiring students to submit 6 subject matter research reports throughout the 2 year period.
This format also allows students to join the HDip Tax at the start of any one of the Subjects. This enables the IITF to have 2 HDip Tax in-takes per year, as apposed to other Institutions who only offer the HDip Tax once every 2 years.
Please view the Online Brochure for full breakdown of the subjects.
The HDip Tax has been developed by leading, local and international, tax practitioners.
Together with the international qualification through the American Bar Association accredited Thomas Jefferson School of Law this gives students a very unique qualification, that is unparalleled by anything currently on offer in South Africa.
This Higher Diploma course takes 18 months to complete and delivers 3 credits towards the TJSL LLM in International Tax and Finance.
