Taxation (BUS303)

Assignment: TJ, 2017






  1. Answer the question, below, in not more than 1,500 words in total (inclusive of footnotes).


  1. A good answer will demonstrate the following qualities:


  • A sound grasp of the relevant legal issues and principles.


  • An ability to explain the legal position comprehensively and clearly.


  • A good command of the English language and the ability to produce a document that meets professional standards in relation to grammar, spelling and punctuation.


  1. Format: Answers must be typed and double-spaced.  Page margins should be the usual Word default margins (approximately 2.5 cm).  Use Times New Roman and 12 point font (this does not apply to footnotes / endnotes).


  1. Bibliography: No bibliography is required, provided you use footnotes (or endnotes) to reference your sources.


  1. Referencing: Follow the Australian Guide to Legal Citation, available at or by googling AGLC and clicking on the relevant links.


  1. Submission: Submit your assignment online by Monday, 6th March at 5.00 p.m.  Use the icon in the Assignment / Final Exam folder to submit your assignment electronically.


  1. Word count: Print the total number of words used in your answers on the cover sheet. A separate document entitled ‘Assignment: Word Limit’ explains how to do the word count.


  1. Punctuality: In order to encourage punctuality, 5% will be deducted from your raw mark for each day (finishing at 5 p.m.), or part thereof, by which the date of submission exceeds the submission deadline.


  1. Plagiarism: this will be penalised severely, normally by failure.




Assess the significance of EACH of the following cases for the development of Australian tax law:


Californian Copper Syndicate v Harris (1904) 5 TC 159

Whitfords Beach Pty Ltd v FCT 82 ATC 4031

Myer Emporium Pty Ltd v FCT 87 ATC 4363.


Has the introduction of the capital gains tax diminished the importance of these cases in any respect?




The assignment is compulsory and counts for 30% of your overall mark.
