Taxation (MBS514)

Organisational Unit School of Management and Governance
Credit Points 4
Availability KAPLAN-SGP: TMA-internal
Description The unit considers the principles of Australian income tax law as they apply to all taxpaying entities. The emphasis is on learning general tax rules and how those rules apply to broad categories of business and financial transactions, rather than on the myriad of specific provisions and exemptions. Teaching of this primary tax unit at graduate level is based on the supposition that students will approach tax law as an integrated component of a complex economic and business environment.
