This unit primarily deals with basic concepts and policies in the legal regulation of taxation in Australia.
The aim of the unit is to provide students with an introduction to Australian taxation law by assisting students to come to an understanding of the core building blocks of the taxation system. Basic concepts such as tax formulae, assessable income, capital gains and allowable deductions are examined with a focus on application to authentic hypothetical examples, including an introduction to Fringe Benefits Tax and the Goods and Services Tax. Some aspects of tax avoidance and tax planning issues are also explored.
