2019 Deloitte Tax Championship FAQ


Q: Are postgraduates to be enrolled in September qualified for the 2019 Championship?

A: Deloitte Tax Championship is only open to the invited universities, and all participants must be full-time students at the time of registration and over the entire period of the competition. Only senior students from the invited universities who are going to enrol as postgraduates in September are qualified for the 2019 Championship.

Q: Can students who participated in the Preliminary Contest, i.e. online competition of the 2018 Championship enrol for the 2019 Championship?

A: To be fair, the rules of Deloitte Tax Championship specify that students who previously participated in the Championship cannot compete in it again. Therefore, students who participated in the Preliminary Contest last year cannot enrol anymore.

Students from different institutes can team up freely. They can either form a team within the same institute, or with students from different institutes. Once the registration form is submitted, the members of each team are confirmed and cannot be changed anymore.

Q: Can the invited university nominate 2 teams with students from different faculties if this university only has students from one institute to register for the competition?

A: The invited university can only nominate 1 team if they have no students from different institutes to enrol for the competition.
