Extensions policy:

The university policy on extensions of time will be strictly enforced. Extensions will

usually only be considered if made via the online system and based on medical or

compassionate grounds. Any extension application should be made before the due date

for submission. Medical conditions should be supported by a medical certificate, and,

since students are expected to start the assignment early, temporary or last-minute

conditions are usually not grounds for an extension. Professionals are expected to

manage their time to meet their obligations, so work or personal commitments are

insufficient grounds for an extension.


The university’s plagiarism policy will also be strictly enforced. If plagiarism is found, a

minimum penalty is likely to be zero marks for the assessment. It could be worse.

This assignment is the only assignment for this course, and it carries a weighting of 40%

of the total assessment for the course.

While the assignment is largely based on material covered, you are free to research and

seek advice as widely as you find necessary—there are no limitations as to sources.

However, you must make sure that sources are appropriately referenced.

This assignment is to be submitted in one (1) Word document only. This assignment to

necessary you put your calculations into columns or tables to improve readability in the

The method of referencing to be used in this assignment is the Australian Guide to Legal

Citation (AGLC) 3rd Edition referencing method. Additional information regarding this

method is available through the library and the Academic Learning Centre. When making

a reference, cite the original source or authority in preference to a secondary source

such as the textbook, especially when you are discussing various sections of legislation.

This means you should make reference to legislation, cases and Tax Rulings as a priority

to back up any arguments that you make in your assignment.
