Product description

Australia has one of the most complex tax systems in the world; thus, the study of tax poses significant challenges. Australian Tax 2020 provides a clear understanding of the basics of the Australian tax system through a step-by-step approach to unravelling complex law.

It provides an overview of the legislation and explains the processes leading to a detailed analysis of the components of the tax equation. Australian Tax 2020 then builds up to a comprehensive research framework for solving complex tax problems.


  • Uses a unique three-level tax pyramid approach to demystify taxation policy and the key income tax, FBT and GST tax equations used to calculate tax payable/refundable.
  • Provides examples and problems to demonstrate how the step-by-step processes apply in the real world.
  • Problems designed for tutorials, lectures, workshops, self-learning, web-based learning and team-based learning.
