Changes to recommended prior learning for Advanced Taxation

We’ve made some important changes to our CPA Program Advanced Taxation subject, taking effect from Semester 2 2018.

The subject content has been significantly enhanced so that it explores some of the complex areas of taxation in greater detail, and the exam will require demonstration and application of knowledge at a more advanced level.

Because of these changes, the subject now assumes prior undergraduate level knowledge of Australian taxation.

Malaysia Taxation offered with Sunway TES

From Semester 2 2018, CPA Australia will no longer be offering the subject Malaysia Taxation directly through the CPA Program.

Members will be able to study an equivalent subject through our partnering university, Sunway TES, and will receive recognition of that study in the CPA Program.

New elective in Financial Planning: Risk Advice and Insurance

This subject will explore the various types of insurance available so individuals can protect their assets, wealth, future income, family and small business. At the completion of this subject, candidates will develop the knowledge and skills to analyse a client’s goals and objectives to identify their potential risks and provide recommendations to help protect them.

Early access to your study guide

We’re always looking for ways to enhance the CPA Program to further support your study. One of the benefits of enrolling early (in the advertised enrolment period) is that you will receive access to a PDF of your study guide* in My Online Learning from the moment you enrol – giving you more time to study.

All your other supporting resources, like Knowledge checks and the Ask the Expert forum, will be available from the official start of the semester.

There’s never been a better incentive to enrol early and get a head start on your study.

If you’re unable to enrol until closer to the semester start date, don’t worry. Our suggested study planner in the back cover of your study guide kicks off from the official start of semester – so you’ll have ample time to work through your study material and prepare for your exam.

*The study guide will be available for all subjects excluding Singapore Taxation. Singapore Taxation has a printed study guide only, which will be sent to the address nominated at the time of enrolment.
