Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

ATTENTION: strongly recommended prerequisite is the prior completion of the module “Tax Law”; knowledge of the contents of the lecture Tax Law as well as UK Tax Law is assumed.
The aims of the course are dealing in depth with special issues of corporate taxation and the consideration of taxation regimes across the various legal forms. Students shall receive the necessary knowledge on dealing with these special issues through solving various case studies. Contents include:
• Special questions regarding the profit determination
• Switching between the various methods of determining the profits
• Taxation of partnerships
• Special issues of taxation with regard to corporations and their shareholders
• Taxation of groups of companies and group situations
• Termination of companies (termination, sale and liquidation)

Assessment and permitted materials

A total of 100 points can be achieved in this course.
The criteria for the performance assessment are divided as follows:
• Participation (through clicker questions [single-choice, multiple-choice, cloze, drag&drop via Moodle] during each lessen; share of the overall grade: 10% = 10 points),
• Acting as a sparring partner for an assigned lesson (includes a presentation on a given topic and discussion of case studies during the lessen; share of the overall grade: 25% = 25 points)
• an intermediate exam (share of the final grade: 20% = 20 points) and
• a final exam (share of the overall grade: 45% = 45 points).
Both exams (intermediate and final) are held in writing in German. Only unannotated law texts, non-programmable calculators and non-electronic dictionaries may be used in the exams.
Only underlining and highlighting of text passages with highlighters etc. as well as the use of Post-Its are permitted. Post-Its may only be labelled with titles of laws/abbreviations of laws. Prohibited are therefore in particular: Any paragraph headings, commentaries or even individual words, examination schemes, other signs, additional sheets as well as paragraph references and chains of references. For example, you may add a Post-It with the following title to § 9 KStG: "§ 9 KStG". However, a combination with the section title, e.g. "§ 9 KStG - Unternehmensgruppen" or even just "Unternehmensgruppen" would be inadmissible.
An assessment is also made if students have participated in the course at least once (e.g. signature performance).
