If waterproofing the wall of a bathroom with cement board (e.g. AquaPanel), any sheets of this material will be butted together where they joint.

Should the cement-boarded wall be finished with (for example) Homelux waterproof wall matting (which requires a cement-based adhesive), then Homelux waterproof flexible joint tape applied to the matting joints.

Or perhaps only the joint tape should be applied to the cement board joints (so no Homelux wall matting applied at all).

No expert but the knauf Aquapanel installation instructions state that it should be installed with a 3mm gap filled in with flexible tile adhesive and aquapanel tape over the top. There are other considerations around fixings and weight of tiles etc so worth checking the aquapanel website

you only need 100mm rolls of tape an silicone can be used to fill the joint. tape can be got for £3 to £6 a roll.
always use powdered cement adhesive for fixing tiles antape.
