This course deals with taxation of structures consisting of multiple 'vehicles'. It covers companies, partnerships and trusts operating in conjunction with one another and large corporate groups. This includes group consolidation. The course is designed to take you beyond a static consideration of the taxation of companies, partnerships and trusts in isolation, to a consideration of the 'synergies', the opportunities, the complexities, the problems, arising from their interaction. It pays particular attention to the operation of legal formalism and the general anti-avoidance provisions in Part IVA on these structures. It looks at intra-group and extra-group transactions. It looks at the new consolidation regime and other proposals for changes.
