Australian Taxation, 1st Updated Edition

ISBN: 9780730397113

The first edition of Australian Taxation is written with accounting students in mind. Now updated to reflect the changes to the 2021/2022 tax rates, the text is concise and to the point, is easy to digest and is applied rather than legalistic. It aims to demystify legal jargon and legal technicality without sacrificing essential core legal knowledge and meaning. Importantly, it provides the requisite foundation for business students who intend to later undertake the professional programs of either CPA Australia or CA ANZ.

Students get the best of both print and digital with our unique offering, which allows for more opportunities for self-study and flexible learning. The E-Text format is ideal for blended learning and features a range of instructional media content designed to provide students with an interactive and engaging learning experience.
