ENGLISH FOR TAX PROFESSIONALS

A COURSEBOOK DESIGNED TO TEACH YOU ‘TAX ENGLISH’
Globalisation has brought a number of foreign companies to your doorstep, with many others contemplating the same idea. For any of them, the knowledge of local economic environment,  particularly its taxation aspect, is of essential importance.

This is where you and your expertise come to play; however, the task you are facing is quite a challenge. Not only do you need to understand and interpret the ever-changing world of tax legislation, but you also have to do that in English. Hence, without a comprehensive knowledge of English taxation terminology your expertise is of little use.

This coursebook is especially designed to help you overcome this difficulty and make you a competent, fluent and confident communicator, capable of advising foreign clients on any aspect of taxation. It examines taxation issues from a global perspective, which makes the acquired knowledge applicable in any organisation in the world.

HOW DOES THE BOOK HELP?
The book will guide you through tax fundamentals to empower you to interpret the essentials of domestic tax legislation; acquaint clients with current changes in tax laws; present findings of tax due diligence; understand and write tax reports in English; advise clients on domestic tax incentives and company formation issues; provide help on all elements of taxation policy necessary to attain tax compliance.

In addition to exclusively professional topics, the book provides guidance on how to learn new vocabulary, stressing the importance of collocations, a proper context and pronunciation; helps you improve general language skills through a concise revision of key structures presented in taxation context, numerous speaking activities and writing tasks.

The book was developed with your needs in mind; therefore, every unit begins and ends with your active participation, giving you the opportunity to present your ideas and experiences on a related topic, at the same time giving the teacher a chance to tailor the course according to your needs.
