LLB Tax Law

Student studying lecture notesModule leader: Professor Geoffrey Morse

Module description:

The module examines the basics of the operation and application of tax law through the operation of the four principal taxes. It is not a course on taxation as such. After considering how tax law originated and its current physiology, the module will look at the two major revenue raising taxes; the charge to income tax, on employees and self-employed taxpayers and VAT. It will then turn to the two principal taxes on capital: capital gains tax and inheritance tax. Emphasis will be on the construction and application of the taxing statutes in modern life.




Modules and Courses are constantly updated and under review. As with most academic programmes, please remember that it is possible that a module may not be offered in any particular year, for instance because a member of staff is on study leave or too few students opt for it. The University of Birmingham reserves the right to vary or withdraw any course or module.
