Description

The objectives of this course are to critically explore current issues in taxation; to consider some of the primary theoretical frameworks used in tax research; and to investigate global approaches to important tax issues.

The objectives of ACCT634 include to critically explore current issues in taxation and to consider some of the primary theoretical frameworks used in tax research.
The course adopts an inter-disciplinary focus to explore contemporary tax issues.  In addition, the course also has a focus on international comparative research, to investigate global approaches to important tax issues.
In-depth knowledge of New Zealand taxation is not a prerequisite for the course; hence ACCT254, or ACCT358 and ACCT359 are not pre-requisites.  However, completion of ACCT254 or ACCT358 and ACCT359 would be a considerable advantage, especially in the application of the material in the course to the New Zealand tax system.

1.  Design a piece of taxation research (including undertaking preliminary analysis and literature review).
2.  Demonstrate an understanding of current issues in taxation.
