About this unit

This online postgraduate unit, provided by Open Universities Australia and Curtin University, deals with the different types of taxation structures that exist both domestically and internationally, and how these are administered. You will look in detail at the existing domestic structures, as well as analyse and examine the issues that surround these structures, including tax planning and tax avoidance.

Delve into the global tax implications for both individuals and entities around the world, apply and evaluate common tax structures and identify the main anti-avoidance mechanisms put in place by international governments. Increase your global taxation knowledge and learn how to critique these common structures.
