Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

1. How many individuals are involved in the Team category?
Each team must consist of four (4) full-time students who are enrolled in an undergraduate degree program from any university, university college, or college.

2. Am I allowed to join both categories?
Yes, Challengers are allowed to join both categories.

3. Is there any limit as to how many teams can represent a university/college?
There is no limit.

4. Are full-time students doing a professional degree (e.g. ACCA, ICAEW, CPA, MICPA) eligible to register?
Yes, as long as the student is registered as a full-time student in a college, university college, or university.

5. Most students in private universities pursue 3+0 accountancy programs, where they study foreign tax (not Malaysian tax) and may find it difficult to participate in the Deloitte Tax Challenge. Will the questions in the Challenge only cover Malaysian aspects?
The Deloitte Tax Challenge is open to all students who are pursuing full-time undergraduate programs. Though the questions are based on Malaysian tax laws, students who are studying foreign tax laws are also encouraged to join the competition, as the primary principles of tax are similar. You may want to start by going through past year questions to get a better idea.

6. I have just completed and passed my final year exams. My convocation is scheduled for the end of the year. Can I still join the Deloitte Tax Challenge this year?
Yes. Participation is open to students pursuing undergraduate programs full-time. Final year students are encouraged to apply. Only Masters and PhD students are not eligible.

7. Are all the registered team members required to sit for the Assessment Stage online test?
No, each team is only required to assign one (1) team representative (team leader) to complete the online test in the Assessment Stage. Please complete the assessment using only one (1) compatible device. A desktop or laptop computer is recommended for the best performance.

8. I registered for the Challenge without taking/completing the online test in the Assessment Stage. Am I eligible to receive the certificate of participation?
E-certificate will be awarded to each Challenger upon completion of each stage. The stages are detailed below:
Assessment Stage – Registered and completed all 40 questions.
Semi-Finals – Presented solution to the assigned case study via a pre-recorded video clip
Grand Finals – Submitted written assessment and presented the solution to the assigned case to the panel of judges.

9. At the Semi-finals stage, will a written assessment and visual aid be required?
No written assessment and visual aid (PowerPoint slides) is required for the Semi-finals stage. Semi-finalists will only be required to present their solution to the questions via a video clip uploaded on YouTube.

10. According to the previous challenges, Challengers are required to gather in Deloitte Malaysia (nationwide office) for the Semi-finals stage and Grand Finals stage. Will Deloitte Tax Challenge 2024 be the same?
Yes, participants are required to attend physically for the Grand Finals stage. For the Semi-finals stage, no physical attendance is required. The participants are only required to record and submit a video presentation clip.

11. For the Team Category presentation, is it compulsory for all team members to present their solutions?
Yes, it is compulsory for all team members to present their solutions at the Semi-Finals and Grand Finals stage. However, there is no required minimum time for each team member’s presentation, and it is entirely up to each team’s arrangements. Please note that the team’s arrangements may influence judging outcomes.
