Course Introduction

This is a basic course on taxation which is relevant to learners involved in accounting, finance, and in taxation. Corporate Taxation is relevant to all businesses (big or small) as it has an impact on the bottom line of the company which will determine its survival in the relevant industry. Particularly for SMEs and Start-Ups, the staff handling tax matters may very well be doing other accounting work. In big companies, they may have the finance or accounting expertise to do taxation matters.

Most, if not all, Finance courses do not provide adequate focus on corporate taxation which includes a practical understanding of doing up the taxes for their companies. This course provides the knowledge and skills with case studies and practical sessions.

Course Objective

The course aims to equip learners, particularly those involved in finance work, with basic tax knowledge to enable them to work out the provision for current and deferred tax of the company.

Case studies will be included to provide learners a fundamental knowledge on how to compute the corporate income tax of a company.

As most SMEs do not have tax specialists, the accounting staff may apply such skills acquired from the course to their daily work.

• Describe the concepts of basic corporate tax
