    I'm in the middle of it now. It's much more in depth than the AAT tax modules and now I'm doing it, I think it's almost essential if you want to work in practice, there is so much you don't learn at AAT. It's quite a step up, but very rewarding.

    Yes, I'm self studying too, and using the BPP (TQT) books. I've bought the passcards this time round also, really want to pass my final 2 exams this November. Good luck with your study.

    Remember if you did business tax at AAT then you are exempt from ATT BTAP paper.

    I would love to do the ATT as I really enjoyed both Personal and Business Tax units of AAT, can you possibly give me some information on it.

    Thanks

    You can still sit the exams and receive a certificate of competency for each individual exam in the subject you exam covers (something for your wall), even without the experience, but you won't get the letters ATT after your name, you need the experience to get that.

    Even without the experience I think ATT exams are a good thing to do, as they give a lot more in depth knowledge and in different areas to AAT, Inheritance for example. If you work for yourself the more knowledge the better, and if you're looking for a job list the individual exams on your C.V, it can only help. Once you have a job you can get the experience later, although I believe you have to keep renewing your certificates, not sure on timelines.
