Award in Advanced VAT and Tax Matters

MQF Level 6 CPD Award
Starting Date To Be Announced

The course has been designed with regulatory experts to provide significant professional benefits to professionals from across the regulatory spectrum and from countries around the world.

Accreditation and MQF level

The accreditation status of this programme is a ‘‘Higher Education Programme’’. A CPD Award accredited with 5 ECTS credits (MQF Level 6) by the Malta Further & Higher Education Authority (MFHEA) in Advanced VAT and Tax Matters will be presented to delegates who obtain a minimum pass in a final 3 hour written examination.

MIA CPE Accreditation

This course has also been accredited with CPE hours (CORE Competencies) by the Malta Institute of Accountants.

Course Duration

4 modules spread over 10 evening sessions (17:30 till 20:45).

Entry Requirements

Given that the course will target advanced matters, an existing knowledge of VAT and Income Tax legislation is a pre-requisite. The prospective student is expected to already hold a degree such as the B. Accountancy (Hons) or LL.D. in the case of University of Malta students, or at least be at an advanced stage of the course in question, having already studied the basics.

In the case of accountants holding professional qualifications such as ACCA, CIMA, ACA and others, it is preferable for them to have successfully completed the relevant exams in Maltese taxation as would be required to qualify for their CPA warrants, thus ensuring that they already have a good understanding of Maltese VAT and Income Tax legislation.

Course Delivery Mode – Live Webinars

This course will be delivered via live online webinars.  The course trainers will be visible on screen via a professional webinar platform through which students can follow the trainer presenting live whilst also using a powerpoint presentation and sharing other resources as necessary.  Students will be able to interact with the trainer by sending questions or comments through the same webinar platform.  Our student support team will assist all students with simple instructions on how to access the webinar online.  A support line will also be made available to communicate with a student support officer in case of technical difficulties encountered during the live webinar.

All webinars will also be recorded and uploaded on the student online resources portal for future reference during home study.  Trainers will also dedicate very regular Q & A times during the webinar to ensure all students can have the chance to ask questions and reach the intended learning objectives.  The email and contact details of the trainer will also be made available in case students would wish to get in touch with the trainer throughout the course period.
