Taxation of Business Enterprises is a specialist subject that aims to give students advanced knowledge of the income taxation of business entities and commercial deals in Australia, placing it within the context of contemporary international debates regarding taxation law. Complex tax law issues are dealt with in the context of the lifecycle of a business, operating in the alternative legal forms of a company, partnership or trust. The subject will also examine tax issues arising on the sale and purchase of a business through a share sale or an asset sale.
The subject is taught by a combination of seminars and case study sessions. In the case study sessions, students work in a syndicate to gain mastery of tax law principles through active engagement in tax planning for a business, culminating in the sale of the business.
This subject enables students to apply advanced tax law to a range of commercial contexts in preparation for professional legal practice. It combines the application of specialist legal knowledge with an integrated analysis of the theory of business taxation in a global context.
