Taxation & Business Law

1. Course Details

Summary of Course

The purpose of this course is to examine the main principles of company law. Emphasis will be given to the areas dealing with the legal effects of incorporation, corporate liability, the raising and maintaining of capital; the responsibility for company management and governance (directors duties and liabilities); the commercial conduct of companies; the protection of shareholders (rights and remedies); liquidation and alternatives for companies in financial distress. Other forms of business structures or organisations will also be referred to in the context of company regulation. The comparative utility of alternative business structures will be assessed. Such utility will be examined from aspects such as personal liability, suitability for property ownership, nature of title to assets and facility for the conduct of commercial operations.

Lecture material will be grounded in contemporary commercial and legal developments to illustrate the practical relevance of topics studied.

Course Aims and Relationship to Other Courses

Business Entities is the main company law course offered by the School of Taxation and Business Law. CPA Australia and the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia (ICAA) have accepted UNSW as an approved tertiary institution for purposes of membership qualifications. Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting) students will generally need to complete the following courses to satisfy professional requirements:

  • TABL 1710 Business and the Law
  • TABL 2741 Business Entities and
  • TABL 2751 Business Taxation (for CPA students, it is advisable to do tax law as part of your degree; otherwise you will need to undertake a tax law course at the CPA after you graduate)

Students may choose to study Business Entities as part of a Business Law major or a Taxation major.

A Business Law co-major involves completing 8 courses (1 compulsory course TABL1710 Business and the Law; and 7 TABL electives which must include at least 3 Level 3 TABL courses). The school offers, for example, the following options that build upon the knowledge gained in this course.

Business Law

  • TABL 3741 Insolvency Law
  • TABL 3761 Law of Banking and Finance

Taxation Law

  • TABL 3757 Corporate Tax Strategy
  • TABL 3755 Taxation of Business Entities

Communication with staff

  • Students are invited to consult, by email appointment, with the lecturer-in-charge on any aspect of the course
  • Students may contact staff by e-mails regarding course administration matters, using only their official university email address as per University Email Policy. E-mail is not an appropriate medium for learning. It is a poor substitute for personal consultation. Do not expect staff to reply to e-mails which request extensive or substantive answers. Teaching staff will use their discretion when consulted via e-mail and may instead invite students to meet in person during consultation hours to discuss complex questions, solutions to tutorial questions, past exam questions, etc.

3. Learning and Teaching Activities

Approach to Learning and Teaching in the Course

The approach to learning and teaching in this course is premised on the fact that active student involvement in the course will facilitate understanding and deep learning of the course materials. The accompanying tutorial program to this course facilitates this outcome together with the opportunities that will arise from time to time in the lectures. Consequently, students are expected to understand rather than memorise and to apply, rather than regurgitate.

In order to obtain the potential benefit from the course and to succeed in all aspects of course assessment, students are required to follow the points below:

  1. Read the prescribed materials before lectures. This will make the material easier to follow and comprehend
  2. Download the lecture handout/slides (available from Moodle) before lectures. It is essential to bring the handout/slides to class and to supplement it with notes taken from the lecture. It is important to remember that the lecture handouts are not designed to be comprehensive and serve as a substitute for lectures
  3. Actively participate in class: answer answers and ask your own
  4. Attend classes on time (important announcements are usually made prior to the delivery of lectures)
  5. Attempt all the revision questions (in tutorial guide) for self-evaluation
  6. Make an appointment to see the lecturer(s) during their consultation hours if further clarification regarding the course content is required.

Learning Activities and Teaching Strategies

The teaching strategies in this course adopt a combination of weekly lectures and tutorials (or seminars) designed to allow the delivery of a body of material and the opportunity thereafter to discuss and contextualise the material. This is done with real life examples to aid student understanding. The teaching strategies adopted aim to encourage critical thinking, and deep and positive learning. The course is also designed to cater for the learning needs of a diverse range of students. It incorporates self-review questions, found in the tutorial guide, to facilitate your own assessment of your progress in understanding the course materials.

The tutorial program for this course serves several useful and practical purposes. It is designed to help consolidate, interpret and apply the lecture material. Students are taught to learn by understanding and application, not memorisation and regurgitation. Solutions to tutorial questions are not provided to ensure that students participate actively in class to confirm their understanding, learn from their mistakes and receive feedback on the correct approach to the questions. Students may see the lecturer or tutor during their consultation hours if further clarification regarding the tutorial questions is needed.

Additionally, the tutorial program and assessment is also designed to allow students to develop the skills (both verbal and written) necessary to analyse problems which may arise in practice. The guide is designed to allow each student to reach the goal of being able to apply theory, knowledge and problem solving technique to fact situations that may arise in company law. It is essential that students learn to select the important issues in such fact situations and that they be able to advance, in discussion, a carefully analysed solution aimed at resolution of the factual situation based on both relevant legislation and case law.

This course assumes you have studied TABL1710 Business and the Law or an equivalent course. If you need to refresh your memory and re-familiarise yourself with the general principles of Australian law, you should read a short introductory book such as Carvan, Understanding the Australian Legal System, latest edition (Law Book Co), or Chisholm and Nettheim, Understanding Law, latest edition (Butterworths).

Reading cases is the best way to gain an understanding of:

  • how common law and equity apply (ie Judge made law, based on previous decisions)
  • how judges interpret the provisions of statutes.

5. Course Resources

​The textbooks for this course are:

  • Harris J, Hargovan A and Adams M, Australian Corporate Law, 6th Edition (2018) LexisNexis/Butterworths [hereinafter referred to as HHA]
    • Note that there are valuable supplementary learning resources accompanying this book, such as quizzes with solutions, available online and accessible by publisher bar-code.
  • Hargovan, A Corporations Law – LexisNexis Case Summaries, 1st ed (2015) LexisNexis/Butterworths
  • Australian Corporations Legislation, 2018, LexisNexis/Butterworths [student edition] Note: Students are strongly advised to use the latest edition of prescribed materials to ensure accuracy. Due to a continuous process of law reform and judicial pronouncements in a rapidly changing corporate environment, it is unadvisable to use previous editions of the prescribed materials. If you do so, you undertake a large risk which may have an adverse impact on performance in the variety of assessments for this course.

6. Course Evaluation & Development

​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 through end of semester myExperience responses. Changes made in the past, based on student feedback, include changes to the assessment regime by substituting the mid-session exam for a regime of continuous assessment.

Program Learning Goals and Outcomes

The Business School Program Learning Goals reflect what we want all students to BE or HAVE by the time they successfully complete their degree, regardless of their individual majors or specialisations. For example, we want all our graduates to HAVE a high level of business knowledge and a sound awareness of ethical, social, cultural and environmental implications of business. As well, we want all our graduates to BE effective problem-solvers, communicators and team participants.

You can demonstrate your achievement of these goals by the specific outcomes you achieve by the end of your degree (i.e. Program Learning Outcomes—henceforth PLOs). These PLOs articulate what you need to know and be able to do as a result of engaging in learning. They embody the knowledge, skills and capabilities that are identified, mapped, taught, practised and assessed within each Business School program.

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

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.

Plagiarism

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: https://student.unsw.edu.au/plagiarism-quiz

Cheating

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: https://student.unsw.edu.au/aim.

For UNSW policies, penalties, and information to help you avoid plagiarism see: https://student.unsw.edu.au/plagiarism as well as the guidelines in the online ELISE tutorials for all new UNSW students: http://subjectguides.library.unsw.edu.au/elise. For information on student conduct see: https://student.unsw.edu.au/conduct.

For information on how to acknowledge your sources and reference correctly, see: https://student.unsw.edu.au/referencing. 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

Workload

It is expected that you will spend at least nine to ten hours per week studying for a course except for Summer Term courses which have a minimum weekly workload of eighteen to twenty 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

Your regular and punctual attendance at lectures and seminars or in online learning activities is expected in this course. The Business School reserves the right to 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.).

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.

View more information on Health and Safety

Keeping Informed

You should take note of all announcements made in lectures, tutorials or on the course web site. From time to time, the University will send important announcements to your university e-mail address without providing you with a paper copy. You will be deemed to have received this information. It is also your responsibility to keep the University informed of all changes to your contact details.

Special Consideration

You must submit all assignments and attend all examinations scheduled for your course. You can apply for special consideration when illness or other circumstances beyond your control, interfere with your performance in a specific assessment task or tasks. Special Consideration is primarily intended to provide you with an extra opportunity to demonstrate the level of performance of which you are capable.

General information on special consideration for undergraduate and postgraduate courses can be found in the Assessment Implementation Procedure and the Current Students page.

Please note the following:

  1. Applications will not be accepted by teaching staff. The lecturer-in-charge will be automatically notified when you lodge an online application for special consideration
  2. Decisions and recommendations are only made by lecturers-in-charge (or by the Faculty Panel in the case of final exam special considerations), not by tutors
  3. Applying for special consideration does not automatically mean that you will be granted a supplementary exam or other concession
  4. Special consideration requests do not allow lecturers-in-charge to award students additional marks

Business School Protocol on requests for Special Consideration

The lecturer-in-charge will need to be satisfied on each of the following before supporting a request for special consideration:

  1. Does the medical certificate contain all relevant information? For a medical certificate to be accepted, the degree of illness and its impact on the student must be stated by the medical practitioner (severe, moderate, mild). A certificate without this will not be valid. Students should also note that only medical certificates issued after physically visiting a registered medical practitioner will be accepted. Medical certificates submitted for Special Consideration should always be requested from a registered medical practitioner that you have seen at a medical practice. Certificates obtained online or via social media may be fraudulent and if relied upon could result in a breach of the UNSW Student Code.
  2. Has the student performed satisfactorily in the other assessment items? To understand what Satisfactory Performance means in this course, please refer to the 'Formal Requirements' section in Part A of your Course Outline

Special Consideration and the Final Exam in undergraduate and postgraduate courses

Applications for special consideration in relation to the final exam are considered by a Business School Faculty panel to which lecturers-in-charge provide their recommendations for each request. If the Faculty panel grants a special consideration request, this will entitle the student to sit a supplementary examination. No other form of consideration will be granted. The following procedures will apply:

  1. Supplementary exams will be scheduled centrally and will be held approximately two weeks after the formal examination period.

    Supplementary exams for Semester 1, 2018 will be held during the period 14 - 21 July, 2018. Students wishing to sit a supplementary exam will need to be available during this period.

    The date for all Business School supplementary exams for Summer Term 2017/2018 is Wednesday, 21 February, 2018. If a student lodges a special consideration for the final exam, they are stating they will be available on this date. Supplementary exams will not be held at any other time.

  2. Where a student is granted a supplementary examination as a result of a request for special consideration, the student’s original exam (if completed) will be ignored and only the mark achieved in the supplementary examination will count towards the final grade. Absence from a supplementary exam without prior notification does not entitle the student to have the original exam paper marked, and may result in a zero mark for the final exam.

The Supplementary Exam Protocol for Business School students is available at: http://www.business.unsw.edu.au/suppexamprotocol

For special consideration for assessments other than the final exam refer to the ‘Assessment Section’ in your course outline.

Protocol for Viewing Final Exam Scripts

The UNSW Business School has set a protocol under which students may view their final exam script. Please check the protocol here.

Given individual schools within the Faculty may set up a local process for viewing final exam scripts, it is important that you check with your School whether they have any additional information on this process. Please note that this information might also be included in your course outline.
