|GST:Design and Structure - ATAX0622|
This course explores the economic and policy issues which underlie and drive GST. It tests these policy issues against critical selected aspects of Australia's and other GST legislative frameworks. The course analyses administration and compliance costs and the importance of planning, by government and business, for the successful operation of a GST. Importantly, it also explores conceptual issues arising in the transition from a tax like a wholesale sales tax to a GST. The focus of the course is a full overview of all aspects of the theoretical concepts that underlie a GST. The objective of this course is to provide sound conceptual and analytical knowledge of GST, which will be valuable for tax practitioners and essential for those involved in administration and development of the GST.
