    They are both quite challenging, but why do you want to know which is the easiest?

    I am confused what to choose .

    Choose whichever is most relevant to your career, if you work in tax then you should do both

    Entirely up to you, I think I did Personal first and then Business but that was quite a while ago and was for no particular reason

    I found both quite complex areas, but very interesting. So glad I chose to sit both tax options. I sat Personal Tax first then Business Tax.

    If you are considering going into practice, then it would be useful to do both. I studied btax as an additional choice during the summer holidays and sat ptax in the October. In terms of which is the easiest, both are challenging but they will give you the tools to work out the real life situations which can be far harder to deal with!
