Certain issues, however, will be central in the course. This includes issues concerning group taxation, restructuring and transfer of a firm, as well as rules concerning close companies. Issues concerning performance measurement and the relationship between accounting and taxation will also be covered extensively in the course. In addition, the course addresses different handling and method issues such as legal argumentation concerning the economic implication of transactions.
Teaching and working methods
The teaching takes the form of lectures, compulsory seminars and compulsory supervision in preparation for the written assignments. The seminars are mainly carried out in small groups and place substantial demands on the student's activity. The student is largely expected study independently, supported by compulsory seminars, where the knowledge should be strengthened, developed and further advanced.
The course is examined in part through active participation in compulsory seminars, and in part through written assignments. The latter is carried out both individually and in groups.
Students failing an exam covering either the entire course or part of the course twice are entitled to have a new examiner appointed for the reexamination.
Students who have passed an examination may not retake it in order to improve their grades.
