The Irish Tax Institute offers the AITI Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) Hunt Scholarship Programme annually for solicitors and barristers in Ireland who are seeking employment.
Named after the late Paddy Hunt SC, Edel Butler was the first recipient of the Hunt Scholarship. Pictured above receiving the award from Mike Gaffney, KPMG at the Institute's Annual Dinner in February 2012, Edel completed a work placement with William Fry and commenced her AITI Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) studies on the 2012 summer course.
We are delighted to confirm that the 2012 Hunt Scholarship was awarded to Donncha O’Tuama pictured below with Martin Phelan, President of the Irish Tax Institute receiving the award at the Institute's annual Conferring Ceremony in November 2012.
AITI Chartered Tax Advisers (CTA) bring real value to a legal practice
Carol Hogan, an Associate with William Fry Solicitors, commented:
“I am a solicitor and an AITI Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA), a real advantage when you’re working in a busy legal firm where the day-to-day issues are so varied. The majority of legal decisions have a tax implication, be that a personal life decision or a commercial decision. The AITI qualification has equipped me with both the professional and real-life skills necessary in a tax adviser role and my in-depth knowledge of Irish tax legislation gives me the authority and confidence to advise on complex matters on an international scale”.
The closing date has now passed for the 2012 Hunt Scholarship.
