We will remain the leading Institute for taxation professionals in the United Kingdom, serving the public interest through the pursuit of excellence and with integrity.


The CIOT is the leading professional body in the UK for advisers dealing with all aspects of taxation. As a not-for-profit organisation our primary purpose is to promote education in taxation with a key aim of achieving a more efficient and less complex tax system for all.


The advancement of public education in taxation.

There are three central pillars for our strategic focus:

  • Professionalism and integrity
  • Building public trust and confidence
  • Educational and Ethical Standards

In maintaining our strategic focus, we will ensure everything we do is consistent with our charitable objects; is proportionate; is inclusive; and serves the public interest. Visit our Strategic Aims infographic here.
