Winners – Tax Professional for a Day Challenge
A hearty congratulations to all of those that participated in the Tax Professional for a Day Challenge – and particularly our winners! Both Cape Town and Johannesburg proved exciting sessions and we are very proud of all that took part.
How the challenge worked
To get things started, Universities nominated their top students to participate in the Tax Professional for a Day Challenge. The sponsors of each challenge then presented a short case study to the “A Tax Professional for a Day Challenge” university teams. The sponsor set a case study and distributed it to each team to read for 10 minutes and formulate an answer.
Each team then presented their solution/opinion. Each team had 5 minutes to present their solution.
The Judges each had 50 points available to them to decide on which areas they wanted to score the students on, for example:
– Relevant areas in Act
– Relevance to Case Law
– Value ad
Presentation skills and critical reviewing skills were also marked.
The sponsors judged each team according to their criteria, and submitted the scores for independent review.
And the winners were….. drum roll please…
