Students are expected to display an in-depth understanding of the operation of the country's tax system, the resident status of taxpayers, taxability receipts and deductibility expenses that impact the computation of income tax liability for the taxpayers. As the 4th Industrial Revolution (IR 4.0) has rapidly impacted the ways businesses are being run, the Government has also introduced some tax initiatives. These profound changes have been incorporated in this module, such as exemptions, allowable deductions and capital allowances to boost the industries' participation rigorously in the global arena.
