Tax issues for companies in Australia are becoming more challenging. As they embrace the global marketplace, and authorities look more closely at tax legislation and collection, skilled advice is needed. Corporate Tax unpacks complex issues to deliver up-to-date, specialised knowledge.

With continuing tax reform, and the opportunities and challenges of the digital economy, Australian businesses need sound tax advice: not just to address domestic issues, but international ones.

Corporate Tax takes a practical look at complex issues and makes them clear. It will help you interpret tax law to prepare advice, analyse and evaluate alternate strategies for situations such as consolidations, effective capital management and tax incentives. Not just for corporate groups, but for public and private companies.

It also provides the skills to advise clients within a global context, including issues such as BEPS (base erosion profit shifting).
