He said "maybe"

I'm gonna guess it's upto your manager what you are expected to do and the practices of your role. You'll be taught either way I'm guessing. Assuming it's not a role that already requires experience.

Are you for real?

Hate to break it to you, but...tax is calculated on profit for corporations, self employed and income from buy-to-let etc. as well as VAT, NI, inheritance et. al.

You will be expected to calculate tax liabilities (as both poacher and gamekeeper) and provide advice minimising tax for a client. To do that you will need to have intimate knowledge to assess profit and then calculate tax owed within statutory obligation.

SMH.

It's the core of your knowledge, experience and work.

What has that got to do with interest though? I'm learning so you don't need to be rude in your response. I would do better without your impertinent way of speaking even if it means you're providing me with information. SMH

Better get used to people being unbelievably rude to the point of outright anger and threats of, and/ or real litigation. Such is the response you will illicit from clients or your employers when tax and hence profitability is involved !

I'm assuming you do not want to work with calculating anything to do with interest?

Compound interest on savings, interest on borrowings, interest on unpaid taxes and fines, Interest on investments to name a few.

Since the context of this question seems to be more or less "can you work as an accountant if you are Muslim or will dealing with interest based transactions count as haram", I would suggest this is something you would get better answers about from the religious authorities of your community. However a simple google search seems to suggest the answer is either a flat "no" or "maybe, but...". Unless you are working in an Islamic bank or company, or a non-Islamic firm that exclusively deals with Islamic finance, it is very likely more than half of that companies operations will involve interest (either in terms of the work they do or in how they themselves are funded e.g. via leveraged debt etc), which seems to be haram.

Well that doesn't give you the right to behave like an insolent child. You cannot use people's future mistakes to cover your own. Please leave this discussion : I do not require your assistance. Goodbye.

The ACA CTA Joint Programme enables students to become an ICAEW Chartered Accountant and Chartered Tax Adviser in three to four years providing they have undertaken relevant professional work experience.


It has been designed specifically for students who want to specialise in tax and gives students the opportunity to specialise in one of three areas:

Taxation of Major Corporates (FTSE 350 companies);
Taxation of Owner-Managed Businesses; or
Indirect Taxation

Good luck with gaining your charter.

What don't you get about the fact that I'm learning? We were all beginners at some point in our lives. Did anyone respond as idiotic as you? Nope, because they're civilised. No need to be rude to beginners and then call it reality. Take what little dignity you have left and don't bother me again. Lol good luck on learning some decorum.

I find it very difficult to believe you can work anywhere involving money without having to deal with interest at some point.

Hopefully you have learned that the world is not a nice place and it's the people in it you will have to deal with.

Chartered 'anything' will require you to both learn about interest and demonstrate your in-depth advanced knowledge in challenging working environments with challenging people - not just in a written exam.

I'm not versed in Islamic requirements which I now assume (having read other responses) is the context of your question?

Insult does not worry or bother me.

I would politely suggest that qualifying a question with a proper context, will avoid future unwanted responses.

Best wishes.

* Chartered Tax Advisor (Or Tax Technician (which isn't chartered)).

Also, of course, you might work with calculating interest.

If the prospect of THAT fazes you then don't bother because you'll be calculating much more technical things later on down the line.
