|Taxation of Corporate Finance - ATAX0607|
In this course you will be exposed to corporate finance concepts, as well as an in-depth examination of core tax law issues in the area, such as debt financing and timing. The course is based on a problem centred approach. The analysis of hard rules will be supplemented by exposure, in the context of practical problems, to some of the hard underlying questions which are, increasingly, on the agenda. The course will encourage you to exercise your critical faculties and to penetrate the key drivers.
Recommended Prior Knowledge
The objectives of the course are to equip you, as a tax professional, with the necessary skills to analyse, and advise, concerning the taxation treatment of a range of financial products and structures. Because many of the existing rules are inappropriate, the course sets up an analytical framework from which a reasoned and efficient response to innovative products may be developed. An understanding of the financial framework in which the rules operate is vital to your understanding of the tax issues, and the course integrates this material with more traditional legal sources to produce a 'law in context' understanding of this critical taxation area.
