Programme Synopsis

What constitutes income? Are you able to distinguish between income, gain and profit? Do you have a good grasp of how to read and interpret the legislation in addition to being familiar with when is income taxable? Understanding fundamental legal (tax) knowledge will allow you to manage your tax risk with confidence.
