BCIT is planning for a substantial return to on-campus activity for the fall 2021 term as informed by BC Public Health Officer guidelines. Refer to each course listing for details.
The purpose of this course is to prepare students to give reliable advice to individual and corporate clients on tax compliance and tax planning issues. To be able to do this, the student must learn the basic tax rules that govern personal and business transactions, and how to do research in the Income Tax Act and other authoritative sources in order to verify the accuracy of their advice. The topics covered will expose the student to these basic rules, as they apply to individuals, corporations, and trusts, and will train the student to find and interpret these rules in the Income Tax Act and other authoritative sources. The coverage of topics will be aimed to achieve competence at a level that will enable students to demonstrate knowledge, analyze problems, and draw logical conclusions in routine situations that have low to moderate complexity. This course qualifies as a prerequisite for entrance into the Chartered Professional Accountants (CPA) Professional Education Program (PEP).
