23 TAXA 6001 Course Description History and Theory of Tax This course seeks to provide the theoretical/conceptual framework of taxation. It will cover the general history of tax and the evolution of the various tax systems within CARICOM, the characteristics, purpose and nature of tax and its politics and economics. The course will also look at the various tax types within the respective jurisdictions. TAXA 6002 Tax Administration This course is an advanced course and it assumes that students will have in depth knowledge of all the relevant tax laws governing the structure and operation of their respective tax administrations. The course will analyze the procedural issues of the Revenue Acts in CARICOM countries. It will provide an analysis of the powers, responsibilities, discretions of the respective Commissioners and the Inland Revenue Departments. It will delve into the principles of tax compliance and the many attempts that taxpayers use to avoid and evade tax. This course will also look at the general methods and principles tax administrators and tax practitioners employ to build taxpayers awareness and at the same time maintain the ethics of the tax profession. The course will review the popular models of tax administrations and look at the process of drafting tax legislation. TAXA 6003 Research Methods & Tax Research Tax policy in government and the practitioner s practice should be driven by research. This course will hone, develop and equip students with the necessary research skills that are necessary for both public and private practice. The students will be equipped with quantitative, qualitative and mixed approaches in solving tax problems. The tax practitioner routinely conducts research in his/her practice. Tax practice may be best described as the application of tax law to specific accounting situations and the practice typically includes tax compliance, tax planning and tax litigation. Tax research in practice seeks to answer tax questions by going through the process of identifying the pertinent issues, determining the correct tax source, evaluating the appropriate source and applying the sources to the specific facts. The course will also equip students to interpret and apply existing tax law, analyze new tax proposals and new pronouncements and review computer tax software. Students will also be assigned directed readings in tax issues. Page 21

24 TAXA 6004 International Taxation The fiscal situation of cross-border, commercial and industrial and other activities are influenced by different factors. The national law of states imposes taxes and designs the national tax system. Different problems arise from the interaction of the nation tax laws of states, including double taxation. States adopt unilateral and bilateral measures in order to solve them. Tax treaties are a key answer for this purpose. They regulate the interaction of the national tax laws: basically, dividing the right to tax between the states and then limiting their tax jurisdiction. This course will look at the unilateral and bilateral measures adopted by states by exploring the international aspects of the national tax laws, the basics of international law, tax treaties of selected countries, and international trends in tax policy. TAXA 6005 Contemporary Taxation Tax Administrators globally are finding it increasingly challenging to implement tax policy. They must therefore realize the critical importance of strategic management in tax administration. This has to be done in the context that tax crime is on the rise, financial crime is on the rise and taxpayers are engaging in more aggressive strategies to mitigate their tax liabilities. It is therefore within this context that tax administrators need to operate. They have to be strategic and current, keeping abreast with the current global trends. Tax administration models should move to require more disclosure, tackle aggressive tax planning, display more understanding to the taxpayer s needs, use cutting edge software and operate the tax administration like a business. This course should be of particular importance and interest to those students who are employed or will be potentially employed in revenue administration and who are in tax practice. The course covers topical issues and the necessary steps that may be taken to deal with them. Page 22

25 TAXA 6006 Taxation of Business Organizations Organizations offer various types of services to their customers and clients in exchange for payments/money. Payments made by the customers and clients to these organizations are classified as income. It is the responsibility of these organizations to pay tax to the government on all income earned. The extent of the taxable income is determined by whether such income may be tax exempt, and whether certain expenses are allowed as deductions from such income. The course will thoroughly examine and analyze the various types of business organizations, operating in the CARICOM business environment - their legal framework and their liability to tax, the extent to which their income may be exempt from tax and the expenses they are allowed to deduct in arriving at their taxable income. Such business organizations include sole traders, partnerships, companies (both quoted and unquoted), credit unions, estates and trusts, nonprofit organizations and provident societies. The course will cover the in depth analysis of agency law, partnership creation, sale of partnership interest, change of partnership; taxation of sole trader; taxation of dividend income; the creation, organization, governance, financial structure, financial management, alteration and dissolution of corporate entities and shareholder rights. TAXA 6007 Fiscal Policy and Public Financing Governments use the budget as a means to control the economic life in its country, thus making it an important tool. This course looks at the importance of the fiscal policy, the budget, the budgetary process, spending and debt on economic growth and stability, resource allocation and the distribution of economic well-being. It will also cover tax reform, debt management, tax reform, monetary policy and fiscal decentralization. Page 23

26 TAXA 6008 Tax Regimes in CARICOM & Neighboring Countries This course will give students a general understanding of the tax regimes in CARICOM and neighboring industrialized countries such as USA, Canada, one Latin American jurisdiction and the Dominican Republic. Particular attention will be placed on the tax structures and content of the international tax systems of USA, Canada, Brazil and Dominican Republic. There are significant economic activities between CARICOM countries and our industrialized neighbors to the north. There are trade agreements; investments (FDI) and more significantly there is employment of CARICOM nationals in these territories. While looking at the various tax regimes, students will be asked to consider how investments and trade agreements (including tourism and music) with these countries are impacted by tax measures in various CARICOM regimes. TAXA 6009 Tax Auditing and Accounting This course brings together tax and accounting principles. The course will provide in depth knowledge of deferred tax; reasons for deferred tax, deferred tax asset and deferred tax liability. The course will also explore inventory valuation methods for income tax purposes, when the taxpayer ceases operations or sells his/her business or when the taxpayer is doing intra-business transfers of inventory. Students will review taxpayer s financial statements for the computation of income tax liability and where financial statements are not available, recreate statements so as to compute the tax liability. The course will apply techniques to detect whether the taxpayer may be involved in tax fraud and or tax evasion. The course will also use forensic auditing techniques. Page 24

27 TAXA 6010 Tax Planning and Management The fiscal situation of cross-border, commercial and industrial and other activities is influenced by different factors. The national law of states imposes taxes and designs the national tax system. Different problems arise from the interaction of the nation tax laws of states, including double taxation. States adopt unilateral and bilateral measures in order to solve them. Tax treaties are a key answer for this purpose. They regulate the interaction of the national tax laws: basically, dividing the right to tax between the states and then limiting their tax jurisdiction. This course will look at the unilateral and bilateral measures adopted by states by exploring the international aspects of the national tax laws, the basics of international law, tax treaties of selected countries, and international trends in tax policy. In our changing world, clients have dynamic tax circumstances which demand that tax practitioners and administrators think critically. They therefore desire their tax consultants to bring significant value to their business or to them individually: clients want to minimize their tax liability using all tax saving strategies. The objective of this course is to develop the student into a consultant who can add this value to his client. Students will be exposed to tax planning strategies and risks, capital budgeting decisions, and the proper use of tax incentives. At the same time students will be exposed to all the strategies to avoid any sort of confrontation or issues with the revenue. TAXA 6011 Research Seminar (Research project) Taxation as a discipline and practice are not static, the discipline and practice are dynamic. Research contributes to its dynamism. The purpose of this course is to develop a pool of expertise in tax research in Caribbean issues. The course will allow each student to conduct research on a Caribbean Tax issue using the methodologies learnt in the research methods course. Students will also establish links with members in the tax community who will become invaluable resource personnel for the tax programme. Students are expected to register for this course at the start of their academic studies. They are required to attend seminars, workshops and conferences and provide feedback to their supervisor. Page 25

28 TAXA 6012 Management Skills Taxation is highly political and dynamic. Taxation policy issues, rules, regulations and laws may be driven by political considerations and ambitions. It is therefore important for the tax practitioner, tax consultant, tax administrator and the policy maker to be adept at managing people, knowing how to lead and handle the change management process within his or her organization, knowing how to build, manage and maintain relationships, situations and communication. Furthermore, the nature of the job requires tax personnel to be in constant dialogue with his/her client, thus the need to have excellent communication skills. This course will be a practical course in management skills and communication. The course will assist students in building their self-awareness, learning critical skills for his/her success, and know how people and organizations function and how to capitalize on this knowledge for success of his/work. The course will use role play and case studies and presentations. Page 26
