The changes made in 2014/2015 are the reorganisation of the learning outcomes for 2 of the Part 3 modules and the introduction of international and domestic tax policy. The two modules being reorganised are Advanced Personal Taxes & Advanced Business Taxes. The elements of Advanced Personal Taxes and Advanced Business Taxes which cover: > > Irish tax issues in an international context will be covered together in Advanced Direct Tax: International, and > > Irish tax issues in a domestic context will be covered together in Advanced Direct Tax: Domestic. Apart from the introduction of international and domestic tax policy the material covered in these modules will remain the same. 1 The Part 3 assessment includes end of course examinations, an interim examination and a professional skills assignment.
