The Business Taxation Assignment examines a student’s ability to conduct research into taxation issues and to provide advice to a client. The assignment will also examine an understanding of statutory income, in particular the capital gains tax provisions of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997.
Question 1 and Question 2a require students to clearly identify the relevant tax issues, reference all applicable sections of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 and/or the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997, related tax cases and/or rulings of the Australian Taxation Office. A suggested format to answer Question 1 and Questions 2a is the traditional ILAC approach:1. Identify the relevant issue(s) 2. State the relevant law 3. Apply the relevant law to the facts provided 4. Reach a conclusion based on the application of the law to the facts
