In the 2016 Autumn Statement the Chancellor announced that,
following the 2017 Spring Budget, Budgets will be delivered in the
Autumn rather than in March or April of each year.
To ensure that the CII continues to offer the most up-to-date
assessments and learning materials, we have reviewed how this
change impacts the timing of our qualifications updating
We can confirm that, despite the reduced notification period, we
shall not be making any changes to our testing periods or the
timing of when updated learning materials will be available.
Updated study materials reflecting current tax year information
(announced in the previous Autumn) will continue to be available in
July each year to support assessment - based on the updated
materials - from 1 September year.
As always, if changes occur during the year we provide
qualification updates that tell you what has changed and from when
this change will be tested.
