1. Course Details

Summary of Course

The focus of this course is on areas where corporate and tax law considerations have a significant influence on business decision making. These are:
  • the raising of corporate finance

  • corporate distributions

  • corporate reorganisations

  • consolidations

  • mergers and demergers

This course does not purport to be an exhaustive analysis of the corporate and tax law considerations relevant to all business decisions. In addition to an analysis of relevant provisions of the Corporations Act 2001, Competition and Consumer Act 2010 and the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 and the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 the subject will examine contemporary real life examples of problems and issues that arise in these areas.

Approach to Learning and Teaching in the Course

The teaching philosophy underpinning the course has the following three-fold aims:

1. Promoting deep learning by:
  • Discussing detailed technical provisions against the background of the issues and problems underpinning them, of alternative approaches to them and of basic tax policy objectives;

  • Limiting the breadth of material dealt with in the course so the above issues are highlighted and significant structural features are examined;

  • Involving you in the learning process through class discussions of case studies, and student presentations of real world case studies;

  • Raising your awareness of ethical aspects of business decisions.

2. Developing your skills by:

  • Requiring you to read and apply primary source materials in the context of practical case study examples;

  • Requiring you to find, read and analyse major secondary works relevant to the background issues, problems, alternative approaches and policy underpinnings of relevant provisions in the income tax law;

  • Requiring you to make oral and media assisted presentations of real world case studies in class.

3. Recognising the different learning styles of individuals by:

  • Using a variety of teaching approaches including: lecturer presentations; in class discussions of case studies, and student presentations of real world case studies;

  • Using a variety of types of assessment techniques including: participation in preparation and presentation of a real world case study, and a final examination

Learning Activities and Teaching Strategies

The method of teaching in this course will take the form of lectures, simulation games, discussion of case studies, and presentation of real world case studies by students, primarily individually.

The purpose of lectures is to provide you with an outline of the main statutory provisions and case law relevant to the issues discussed in the course. Lectures are not intended to be a substitute for reading and analysing primary source material and opinions of commentators in textbooks and journal articles. To prepare for lectures you should read the references for the week in question in the course Reading Guide before attending the relevant lecture.

The purpose of in class discussion of case studies is to illustrate the application of principles in hypothetical fact situations. It is important that you prepare for case study discussions by reading the references for the week in question in the Reading Guide and by thinking about the possible issues in the case study before attending the relevant class in which the case study is discussed.

Weeks 3 and 7 will involve you working individually on one part of a simulation game. In week 3 the game will involve forming a company. In week 7 the game will involve making and defending a take-over of a company. You will be allocated a role/ task for the Simulation Games during week 2. Each student will be required to write up and present a summary of your conclusions during the class in which the Simulation Game is played. Further information about the Simulation Games will be placed on the Moodle page for the course.

You will be required to research, write up and present in class, in week 10, a Real World Case Study. Details of the requirements for the Real World Case Study are set out later in this Course Outline. This activity has several purposes. These include:

(a) building your awareness of the application of the principles discussed in the course in real world situations;

(b) developing your written and oral presentation skills;

(c) enhancing your skills in researching current issues in business practice;

(d) raising your awareness of ethical issues associated with corporate tax planning strategies.

5. Course Resources


Students are required to have access to:

  • a current edition of the Corporations Act 2001

  • a current edition of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010

  • a current edition of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 and the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997

Background Reading:

No one text adequately deals with the topics in this course. Reference to the following texts will provide useful background reading for the topics dealt with in the course outline. References to appropriate paragraphs of these texts will be found throughout the course outline. Students should read these references as background preparation for class discussions:

  • Chapters 11 and 12 of Taylor, Walpole, Ciro and Murray, Understanding Taxation Law, Lexis Nexis 2022

Additional Reading:

The following texts discuss in some depth many of the topics dealt with in this course. Unfortunately, some of the texts are now several years old and only contain references to ITAA97. Students need not read these references prior to classes on the topic but should find reference to these texts to be useful follow-up reading to classes. Students should exercise care in using older texts as both the legislation and case law may have changed since the text was written. Reference should always be made to the latest version of the relevant Statute and to current commentaries to check the current position. Additional references and suggested readings may be placed on Moodle throughout the course.

  • HAJ Ford, R P Austin and I Ramsay, Ford, Austin and Ramsay’s Principles Of Corporations Law (Available online through Lexis Nexis [Australia] website via UNSW Library)

  • R Levy, Takeovers: Law And Strategy, Thomson Reuters, latest edition

  • Baxt, Black and Hanrahan, Securities and Financial Services Law, Lexis Nexis, 9th edition, 2016.

Reference should also be made to commentary on relevant provisions in:

  • CCH Australian Federal Tax Reporter (available online through the UNSW Library Website)

  • ATP Commentary ITAA 1997 (available online through the UNSW Library Website)

  • Internet Resources

The following internet sites will be useful in this course:

Electronic Databases:

The UNSW library subscribes to several electronic databases.

Students should check Moodle regularly throughout the course.

6. Course Evaluation & Development

Feedback is regularly sought from students and continual improvements are made based on this feedback. At the end of this course, you will be asked to complete the myExperience survey, which provides a key source of student evaluative feedback. Your input into this quality enhancement process is extremely valuable in assisting us to meet the needs of our students and provide an effective and enriching learning experience. The results of all surveys are carefully considered and do lead to action towards enhancing educational quality.

Each year feedback is sought from students and other stakeholders about the courses offered in the School and continual improvements are made based on this feedback. UNSW's myExperience survey is one of the ways in which student evaluative feedback is gathered. In this course, we will seek your feedback via end of Term myExperience responses and informal mid-course paper surveys. Feedback from previous students indicated that most students found the course interesting, challenging and engaging. Nonetheless a significant number of students indicated that:

  • More information was needed about assessments and marking criteria in the course;

  • The assessment workload was too great; and

  • The course content was detailed with long readings which were hard to cover in a 12 week semester.

As a result of this feedback the following changes have been made:

  • Simulation Games have been redesigned to accommodate learning in an online environment.

  • A more detailed rubric has been developed in relation to the Real World Case Study. This rubric has been placed on the course Website.

  • Providing examples of Real World Case Studies from previous years on the course Website.

  • The course content has been reviewed with the number of topics covered being reduced.

The School of Accounting, Auditing and Taxation’s quality enhancement process involves regular review of its courses and study materials by content and educational specialists, combined with feedback from students. Towards the end of the Term, you will be asked to complete the online myExperience survey via Moodle to evaluate the effectiveness of your course lecturer and the actual course content. Your input into this quality enhancement process through the completion of these surveys is extremely valuable in assisting us in meeting the needs of our students and in providing an effective and enriching learning experience. The results of all surveys are carefully considered and do lead to action towards enhancing the quality of course content and delivery.

8. Policies and Support

Information about UNSW Business School program learning outcomes, academic integrity, student responsibilities and student support services. For information regarding special consideration, supplementary exams and viewing final exam scripts, please go to the key policies and support page.

Program Learning Outcomes

The Business School places knowledge and capabilities at the core of its curriculum via seven Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs). These PLOs are systematically embedded and developed across the duration of all coursework programs in the Business School.

PLOs embody the knowledge, skills and capabilities that are taught, practised and assessed within each Business School program. They articulate what you should know and be able to do upon successful completion of your degree.

Upon graduation, you should have a high level of specialised business knowledge and capacity for responsible business thinking, underpinned by ethical professional practice. You should be able to harness, manage and communicate business information effectively and work collaboratively with others. You should be an experienced problem-solver and critical thinker, with a global perspective, cultural competence and the potential for innovative leadership.

All UNSW programs and courses are designed to assess the attainment of program and/or course level learning outcomes, as required by the UNSW Assessment Design Procedure. It is important that you become familiar with the Business School PLOs, as they constitute the framework which informs and shapes the components and assessments of the courses within your program of study.

PLO 1: Business knowledge

Students will make informed and effective selection and application of knowledge in a discipline or profession, in the contexts of local and global business.

PLO 2: Problem solving

Students will define and address business problems, and propose effective evidence-based solutions, through the application of rigorous analysis and critical thinking.

PLO 3: Business communication

Students will harness, manage and communicate business information effectively using multiple forms of communication across different channels.

PLO 4: Teamwork

Students will interact and collaborate effectively with others to achieve a common business purpose or fulfil a common business project, and reflect critically on the process and the outcomes.

PLO 5: Responsible business practice

Students will develop and be committed to responsible business thinking and approaches, which are underpinned by ethical professional practice and sustainability considerations.

PLO 6: Global and cultural competence

Students will be aware of business systems in the wider world and actively committed to recognise and respect the cultural norms, beliefs and values of others, and will apply this knowledge to interact, communicate and work effectively in diverse environments.

PLO 7: Leadership development

Students will develop the capacity to take initiative, encourage forward thinking and bring about innovation, while effectively influencing others to achieve desired results.

These PLOs relate to undergraduate and postgraduate coursework programs.  For PG Research PLOs, including Master of Pre-Doctoral Business Studies, please refer to the UNSW HDR Learning Outcomes

Business School course outlines provide detailed information for students on how the course learning outcomes, learning activities, and assessment/s contribute to the development of Program Learning Outcomes.

UNSW Graduate Capabilities

The Business School PLOs also incorporate UNSW graduate capabilities, a set of generic abilities and skills that all students are expected to achieve by graduation. These capabilities articulate the University’s institutional values, as well as future employer expectations.

You can use a portfolio as evidence in employment applications as well as a reference for work or further study. For support with selecting your courses contact the UNSW Business School Student Services team.

Academic Integrity and Plagiarism

Academic Integrity is honest and responsible scholarship. This form of ethical scholarship is highly valued at UNSW. Terms like Academic Integrity, misconduct, referencing, conventions, plagiarism, academic practices, citations and evidence based learning are all considered basic concepts that successful university students understand. Learning how to communicate original ideas, refer sources, work independently, and report results accurately and honestly are skills that you will be able to carry beyond your studies.

The definition of academic misconduct is broad. It covers practices such as cheating, copying and using another person’s work without appropriate acknowledgement. Incidents of academic misconduct may have serious consequences for students.


UNSW regards plagiarism as a form of academic misconduct. UNSW has very strict rules regarding plagiarism. Plagiarism at UNSW is using the words or ideas of others and passing them off as your own. All Schools in the Business School have a Student Ethics Officer who will investigate incidents of plagiarism and may result in a student’s name being placed on the Plagiarism and Student Misconduct Registers.

Below are examples of plagiarism including self-plagiarism:

Copying: Using the same or very similar words to the original text or idea without acknowledging the source or using quotation marks. This includes copying materials, ideas or concepts from a book, article, report or other written document, presentation, composition, artwork, design, drawing, circuitry, computer program or software, website, internet, other electronic resource, or another person's assignment, without appropriate acknowledgement of authorship.

Inappropriate Paraphrasing: Changing a few words and phrases while mostly retaining the original structure and/or progression of ideas of the original, and information without acknowledgement. This also applies in presentations where someone paraphrases another’s ideas or words without credit and to piecing together quotes and paraphrases into a new whole, without appropriate referencing.

Collusion: Presenting work as independent work when it has been produced in whole or part in collusion with other people. Collusion includes:

  • Students providing their work to another student before the due date, or for the purpose of them plagiarising at any time
  • Paying another person to perform an academic task and passing it off as your own
  • Stealing or acquiring another person’s academic work and copying it
  • Offering to complete another person’s work or seeking payment for completing academic work

Collusion should not be confused with academic collaboration (i.e., shared contribution towards a group task).

Inappropriate Citation: Citing sources which have not been read, without acknowledging the 'secondary' source from which knowledge of them has been obtained.

Self-Plagiarism: ‘Self-plagiarism’ occurs where an author republishes their own previously written work and presents it as new findings without referencing the earlier work, either in its entirety or partially. Self-plagiarism is also referred to as 'recycling', 'duplication', or 'multiple submissions of research findings' without disclosure. In the student context, self-plagiarism includes re-using parts of, or all of, a body of work that has already been submitted for assessment without proper citation.

To see if you understand plagiarism, do this short quiz:


The University also regards cheating as a form of academic misconduct. Cheating is knowingly submitting the work of others as their own and includes contract cheating (work produced by an external agent or third party that is submitted under the pretences of being a student’s original piece of work). Cheating is not acceptable at UNSW.

If you need to revise or clarify any terms associated with academic integrity you should explore the 'Working with Academic Integrity' self-paced lessons available at:

For UNSW policies, penalties, and information to help you avoid plagiarism see: as well as the guidelines in the online ELISE tutorials for all new UNSW students: For information on student conduct see:

For information on how to acknowledge your sources and reference correctly, see: If you are unsure what referencing style to use in this course, you should ask the lecturer in charge.

Student Responsibilities and Conduct

​Students are expected to be familiar with and adhere to university policies in relation to class attendance and general conduct and behaviour, including maintaining a safe, respectful environment; and to understand their obligations in relation to workload, assessment and keeping informed.

Information and policies on these topics can be found on the 'Managing your Program' website.


It is expected that you will spend at least ten to twelve hours per week studying for a course except for Summer Term courses which have a minimum weekly workload of twenty to twenty four hours. This time should be made up of reading, research, working on exercises and problems, online activities and attending classes. In periods where you need to complete assignments or prepare for examinations, the workload may be greater. Over-commitment has been a cause of failure for many students. You should take the required workload into account when planning how to balance study with employment and other activities.

We strongly encourage you to connect with your Moodle course websites in the first week of semester. Local and international research indicates that students who engage early and often with their course website are more likely to pass their course.

View more information on expected workload

Attendance and Engagement

Your regular attendance and active engagement in all scheduled classes and online learning activities is expected in this course. Failure to attend / engage in assessment tasks that are integrated into learning activities (e.g. class discussion, presentations) will be reflected in the marks for these assessable activities. The Business School may refuse final assessment to those students who attend less than 80% of scheduled classes where attendance and participation is required as part of the learning process (e.g. tutorials, flipped classroom sessions, seminars, labs, etc.). If you are not able to regularly attend classes, you should consult the relevant Course Authority.

View more information on attendance

General Conduct and Behaviour

You are expected to conduct yourself with consideration and respect for the needs of your fellow students and teaching staff. Conduct which unduly disrupts or interferes with a class, such as ringing or talking on mobile phones, is not acceptable and students may be asked to leave the class.

View more information on student conduct

Health and Safety

UNSW Policy requires each person to work safely and responsibly, in order to avoid personal injury and to protect the safety of others.
