The Taxation and Revenue Law course is an overview of the UK taxation system.
The objective of the course is to provide an overview of the structure of the tax legislation which will enable participants to determine the tax consequences that flow from factual situations.
We will be studying the legislation and decided cases with the consideration of hypothetical factual situations that would commonly be encountered in practice.
More specifically, participants will learn about the main features of the income tax system including the concept of total income, personal allowances and deductibility of different types of receipts and items of expenditure. We will consider the tax treatment of fringe benefits and capital gains.
The differing tax consequences in respect of various legal entities, such as partnerships, trusts and companies, are also studied.
The last part of the course deals with the collection and recovery of tax, and the procedures to be followed by a taxpayer in disputing a tax assessment.
At the end of this module, participants will understand the impact of taxation and should be able to:-
