Portuguese Tax System - recent evolution, present structure, future perspectives.
Study of the more important taxes of the Portuguese Tax System (IRS, IRC, IVA e Security Social Contributions).
|Evaluation:||The teaching methodology is fundamentally based in theoretical-practical lectures, enabling a close contact between teacher and students, in the systematic use of concrete exercises/examples and in the development of a mandatory “group assignment", comprising the approach of a theoretical question and the resolution of an integrated exercise about IRS, IRC e IVA.
The assessment consists in a written individual examination (60% of the final grade, subject to a minimum score) and a group assignment and its discussion with the teacher (40% of the final grade).
