GCOM 7420 Taxes and Business Strategy

Tax rules are pervasive in their effect on the decisions of businesses. This course uses the economics-based framework of “all parties, all taxes, all costs” to consider how both tax and non-tax factors affect business activities. Specific decision settings examined include mergers and acquisitions, compensation, and multi-jurisdictional tax planning. How firms report these tax effects in their financial statements will also be covered. Spring term. Required for all students.
