Tax Compliance

Tax Compliance (TC) 

There are four technical questions in the TC exam and each one focuses on a specific tax: Income Tax, Corporation Tax, Capital Taxes or Indirect Taxes. 

 

Our TC tuition simplifies the technical content by teaching you the content which is most frequently examined and grouping interrelated topics together to make learning the content much more manageable. For example, we teach National Insurance (NI) with the Income Tax aspects of employment and trading income because NI is due on employment and trading income.  

 

Tuition is extremely exam focused and once the technical content for a tax has been taught, we will develop your exam technique by teaching you the most effective way to answer each type of exam question on that tax.

The learning strategies and exam techniques you will be taught are those which enabled your tutor to score 88% in the TC exam and win a prize from the ICAEW. This tuition approach has resulted in several of our students also scoring over 80%.

I approached ACA Masters after failing my TC paper in September. This was the best decision I could make because not only did I understand the topics more thoroughly through Kieran's approach but I also passed with a fantastic mark of 85%. I will definitely be using ACA Masters for future exams

TC Video Course

(2021 version)

Our prize-winning Senior ACA Tutor Kieran Doe has recorded our TC video course. ​Each class focuses on a frequently examined topic and explains the key technical concepts in a simplified way, before demonstrating the optimal exam technique by working through recent past exam questions in full. Kieran will teach you the most efficient way to read, interpret and analyse the exam paper and most importantly, the specific technique you should use when typing your answer. This includes practical advice on how to make effective use of your open book when answering questions.

Having understood the technical content and exactly how you should be approaching a particular type of TC exam question, you can then go and attempt similar past exam questions to put these prize-winning exam technique skills to the test and watch your marks drastically improve - hopefully you will join our growing list of prize winners! Our TC Master Plan (see below) categorises all the past exam questions by topic to make it easy for you to practice similar questions after each class.​ This enables you to conquer TC by mastering one area at a time.

Study Materials

(2021 version)

Our prize-winning ACA tutor Kieran Doe has developed our unique TC Study Materials which include learning notes, master plans and exam technique guidance. 

TC Learning Notes

Our TC Learning Notes concisely summarise the essential technical knowledge you need to pass the exam. This enables you to focus on the essential content for each topic and then test yourself by reproducing the condensed content on a blank page. This will force you to actively recall the information so that it is embedded in your brain ready to use for exam questions.

The notes include:​​

  • Easy-to-use summarised technical notes for each topic

  • Calculation proformas and reminders of things to include in your answer

A small sample is included at the bottom of this page. 

TC Master Plan

To ensure that you use your study time as effectively as possible, we have broken the syllabus down into examinable topics so that you can allocate your time to specific examinable topics. For each topic, we have listed the recent past exam questions which examined the topic. There is also a reference to how frequently the topic is examined, the extent to which it is examined and the TC video class which demonstrates the exact exam technique to use for that type of question.

Exam Technique Guidance

We have included exam technique guidance for each type of TC question. This contains detailed advice on how you should approach each exam question in order to score top marks.
