In addition, the course also has a focus on international comparative research, to investigate global approaches to important tax issues.

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.

Demonstrate an understanding of current issues in taxation.3. Demonstrate critical and analytical thinking skills.4. Actively lead and participate in discussion of current issues in taxation.
