Hi Larry

I am writing Income Tax Returns in July and want to use my current 2016 textbooks. Can I use the 2017/2018 tax guide and amend the information in my textbook accordingly? Is it really necessary to get new textbooks?



Hi Michelle,

All learners must contact their ICB training providers to check which textbooks will be updated. These updates will affect your studies and assessment preparations. Textbooks are updated every year due to changes in legislation, accounting standards, tax tables and software. But some have significant updates and some only minor.

We can confirm that the Income Tax Returns textbook has had significant changes made to it which will affect the exam. The other textbooks that have had significant changes made to them are:
Payroll & monthly returns
Financial reporting standards
Business and office administration 1
Public accounting administration
Business management 1
Entrepreneurship 1

The other textbooks not mentioned here have only had minor changes.

If you are ever unsure in future, please contact your college or Edge Learning Media for confirmation:

Good luck with your studies!
