  • policies unveiled before the election, including tax reform of managed funds
  • policies announced since the election, including scrip takeover rules
  • the tax consultation directions of the new government
  • Budget 2008 developments
  • business tax changes which can be expected, including international tax reform, off-market share buy-backs and what's left of the 1936 Act
