Tax Team Exam Success

Robinson Reed Layton, the Cornish firm of Chartered Accountants and Chartered Tax Advisers, is celebrating the success of tax team member Alex Reed who has passed all of his Chartered Institute of Taxation exams and is now a fully qualified Chartered Tax Adviser.

Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) is the premier UK qualification for those engaged in giving advice on tax, and is awarded only after an individual has proved themselves through a combination of examinations and practical experience.

Steve Maggs, Tax Partner at Robinson Reed Layton, said: “I’m really pleased for Alex and would like to congratulate him on his accomplishment. Completing the necessary training to become a Chartered Tax Adviser is no mean feat, which is reflected by the fact that there are only a small number throughout the whole of Cornwall. Alex should certainly be very proud.”
Alex has been with Robinson Reed Layton since graduating from the University of Bristol in 2012 and qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 2015. Since last year, he has been working in the firm’s Tax Team to strengthen his knowledge in this area, which has culminated in this latest success.

Alex was extremely pleased with the good news, commenting: “I’m delighted to have completed my Chartered Tax Adviser exams and to have attained what is a very demanding qualification.

Robinson Reed Layton have been fantastic in offering their support through every step of my training and providing opportunities for me to grow in my role. I’m now looking forward to
continuing to develop my knowledge and expertise in taxation, and consolidating the firm’s pre-eminent tax offering in Cornwall.”

Explaining what Alex’s accomplishment meant to the firm, Steve Maggs added: “Including Alex, we now have a total of five Chartered Tax Advisers working within the firm, contributing towards what I believe is the strongest in-house Tax Team in Cornwall. It is excellent to see our Tax Team further enhanced with this latest qualification.

“Due to the specialised nature of taxation, I would always recommend that anyone who is seeking help or guidance in relation to their tax affairs should get in touch with a Chartered Tax Adviser, to ensure that they are receiving the highest quality of advice available.”
