Course Overview

Tax analysis and revenue forecasting are now being given their due prominence as governments carry out developments of their tax systems to boost revenues, enhance the equity and efficiency of taxes, and stimulate economic expansion.

This course covers the economic footings of tax policy, revenue forecasting and statistical methods to provide participants with the ability to execute effective tax reforms.

The course encompasses a comprehensive array of taxes such as value-added tax, personal and commercial income tax, excises, property tax, trade taxes and taxes on natural resources. The usage of macroeconomic models, micro-simulation models and typical taxpayer models are also included in this program.

The course also focuses on the technical and official aspects of revenue forecasting and tax policy analysis, where it delivers an outline of the quantitative approaches that are required to forecast and assess the revenue implications of variations in major taxes like personal income taxes, commercial income taxes, value-added taxes, excise taxes, and international trade taxes. The course also highlights the need for establishing a robust institutional framework to sustain the revenue forecasting process.

Why is this Tax Policy Analysis and Tax Revenue course necessary? The theory of taxation is essential to corporations because governments can subsidise this money back into the economy in the shape of corporate loans or other funding programs.

However, economies cannot benefit from this if the businesses that contribute to them do not understand tax policies and tax revenue mechanisms properly. Companies can also be impacted directly and indirectly if they fail to file their tax returns properly, and this course can be beneficial to avoid such situations.

This Zoe training course will empower you with both conceptual and practical approaches and employs hands-on activities to support learning, which includes quizzes and quantitative exercises with real fiscal data.
