What Our Students are saying

“Studying ADIT has been a game-changer when seeking to deliver qualified guidance for an array of international structures, whether onshore or offshore. Indeed, the qualification offers a lot of synergy to my existing work in corporate, trust and funds; enabling me to better explain international tax issues, whether in layman’s terms to private clients, or detailed analysis to seasoned professionals.”

Vistra Group | Richard Melton, Director | Cyprus

“The Advance Diploma in International Taxation (ADIT) is a highly recommended qualification for tax advisors. It has provided me with a strong foundation of international tax principles, has enhanced my way of thinking around tax developments and has proved very useful in my day-to-day work. Furthermore, attending tuition for ADIT has given me the opportunity to interact with other tax practitioners, expanding my professional network.”

Deloitte | Michael Aris Michaelides, Director | Cyprus

“The ADIT qualification has proved to be a valuable tool towards enhancing my tax career, it has outlined the way to build a well structured tax mentality and assisted the navigation through cross-border tax case scenarios, it has brought about an enlightening awareness of the interaction of national tax legislation with international law, treaties and conventions and an understanding of the global efforts to combat tax evasion and avoidance.”

Ministry of Finance | Stavroula Vrasida, Head of the Advanced Tax Rulings Unit | Cyprus

“The Advanced Diploma of International Tax Qualification (ADIT) unlocks a broad tax toolkit enabling the tax professional to apprehend complex and sometimes overlapping tax principles and Tax Laws. It enabled me to gain comprehensive International and EU Tax knowledge thus aiding to (i) cultivate and expanding my ‘Tax’ critical thinking and understanding, (ii) constructively evaluating tax developments and (iii) giving elevated value to my clients.”

Direct Tax at Scordis, Papapetrou & Co | Costas Michail, Director | Cyprus

“The addition of the ADIT qualification was a clear choice to enhance our offering as an independent consultancy. It strengthens our own brand, and offers our clients the security that the advice they receive is of an assured, global standard. We have not looked back.”

Priority Tax Consulting | James Ryan ADIT, Principal | Ireland
