“There are two things in life that are certain - Death and Taxes…” (Benjamin Franklin, 1789)
Although most people aren’t excited about paying Tax, I believe that it's one of the most interesting, rewarding and practical subjects to study! To be able to calculate your own taxes (and charge everyone who asks you for help!), and for any company you work for, is a real-life skill you’ll thank me for!
I’ve lectured Tax for more than 20 years (I started at an early age, ok!?). I’ve worked to develop the most effective approaches. Whilst being the Head of Tax at UJ we consistently achieved some of the best ITC results in the country – it is this wealth of experience that I bring into Tabaldi’s winning approach. I'm convinced that my passion for teaching will inspire you to enjoy and excel at Tax.
I’ve implemented the following in the design and videos of the CTA Tax courses for you:
- Understanding rather than memorising theory: I explain WHY the specific section/s appear in the Tax Acts. This will save you a lot of time going forward… and I know that every second is worth gold in your CTA year! (Remember that you’ll have all the ‘theory’ in your open books anyway… so your application is going to be examined… not your memory!)
- How to use your open-books Right from the start, I guide you through how to prepare YOUR COPY of the Tax Act that YOU ARE ALLOWED TO TAKE INTO THE EXAMS! (and into the final ITC exam!). I call this your personal “Weapon Of Mass Mark Accumulation” (WOMMA) – need I say more?
- Questions and exam technique: Once we are all comfortable with the relevant sections of the Act (as explained in each video), I move into the application of this knowledge – generally by using a basic example and/or examples that appear in the study guides.
- Discussion forums I’m available all year on our discussion forums to answer your queries, motivate you… and yes… to TAX YOU! (excuse the pun!) by checking up on your progress - and lend a helping hand when needed!
I want you to have a great foundation for your future studies, and help you develop a life-long knowledge of working with Tax. Remember, the Tax Act is updated all the time… so your CTA knowledge won’t last you forever! You’ll need to learn how to make sense of the changes as they happen in the future.
Basically…I’m here to team up with you: Teamwork makes dream work!
