The following notes refer to Taxation – United Kingdom (TX-UK) only. Guidance for other variant exams – where available – is published on the ACCA website.

Examinations falling within the period 1 June to 31 March generally examine the Finance Act which was passed in the previous year.  Exams falling in the period 1 June 2024 to 31 March 2025 will examine the Finance Act 2023 (which received Royal Assent on 10 January 2023) The Finance (No. 2) Act 2023 did not receive Royal Assent by the exam cut-off date of 31 May 2023, and is therefore not examinable as regards exams falling in the period 1 June 2024 to 31 March 2025. 

Finance Acts

The latest Finance Act which will be examined in TX-UK in examinations falling within the period 1 June 2024 to 31 March 2025 is the Finance Act 2023.

With regard to prospective legislation where, for example, provisions included in the Finance Acts will only take effect at some date in the future, such legislation will not normally be examined until such time as it actually takes effect.  The same rule applies to the effective date of the provisions of an Act introduced by statutory instrument.
