The South African Institute of Professional Accountants (SAIPA) invites all universities to enter their Tax & Accounting Thesis competition, by submitting the top three completed thesis/dissertations for 2017/2018 in fulfilment of the Honours, Masters or Doctoral degrees in either accounting or taxation on or before 30 June 2018.
“The competition is aimed at promoting good research in accounting and taxation by rewarding candidates whose thesis/dissertation have been selected through an adjudication process as the best in their degree level,” said SAIPA’s Technical and Standards Services Executive Faith Ngwenya.
SAIPA reserves the right to verify with the university the eligibility of the candidate.
All thesis/dissertations that have been submitted will be marked by a panel of experts in line with an agreed rubric. Each paper will be marked by at least two independent markers and further independently moderated.
Ngwenya points out that the submitted thesis/dissertations will only be used for the competition and will not be published otherwise.
There will be one winner in each of the degree levels for accountancy and taxation. Altogether, six winners will be awarded prizes as follows:
Doctoral degree winners R20 000
Master’s degree winners R15 000
Honours degree winners R10 000
Electronic copies of the thesis/dissertation must be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The winning thesis/dissertations will be announced at the SAIPA Top Achievers Awards 2018 ceremony no later than 31 August 2018.
