Unit 30 Taxation
Aim of Unit 30 Taxation
The main aim of this unit is to understand the effectiveness of taxation policies. It aims to consider the issues that comply with the ethical principles of business, obligations of taxpayers, planning in taxation and systems of taxation. Organizations should ensure that the organizations are able to comply with the taxation policies of the country in which they operate. This study will enable the students to comply with the policies of taxation and how such liabilities are applicable to the business organizations. Such policies and planning procedures have a considerable impact on the growth of organizations.
By the end of this unit a student will be able to:
Analyse taxation systems and the legislation which governs them.
Determine taxation liabilities for unincorporated organisations and individuals.
Determine taxation liabilities for incorporated organisations.
Evaluate the impact on organisations of the legal and ethical constraints associated with taxation responsibilities.
LO1 Analyse taxation systems and the legislation which governs them
The Taxation systems are present in different countries that bind the running of the organizations. The taxation systems of one country differ from the taxation policies of other countries. The interrelationship in relation to trade and economy of the countries should be considered. Proper consideration should be given to the countries that are members of trade blocs like EU, NAFTA and APEC. The interrelationship of one countries taxation system with another country’s system should be well identified.
LO2 Determine taxation liabilities for unincorporated organisations and individuals
Unincorporated organizations will take into account the characteristics and background of the organizations giving proper consideration for the upcoming benefits and non adversities of the organization. It is important to feature each type of taxation and the impact of trading as a sole trader or partnership firm. The key implications would include calculations based on inheritance tax , corporation tax and tax from capital gains. Proper models should be taken into account for identifying the gains from tax year at one year with the tax year at another year. Changes in legislation can be identified.
LO3 Determine taxation liabilities for incorporated organizations
Incorporated organizations have separate identities. There are benefits as well as adversities of such organizations. There is a basic distinction made between private and public limited companies. Specific taxation benefits are available for each. It is necessary to make use of models for making a distinction between taxation policies at one year with the taxation system at another year.
LO4 Evaluate the impact on organisations of the legal and ethical constraints associated with taxation responsibilities
There are legal
constraints that are applicable at regional national and international levels.
They apply to different business organizations in setting up of strategies and
framing policies. Ethics is the code of conduct that has to be followed by a
particular nation. The ethical constraints can be applied at different cultures
based on the traditions and customs of the society of every country. All kinds
of transactions and recordings for taxation are carried out by organizations
such as VAT, income tax and National Insurance.
