P6 syllabus builds on the basic knowledge of core taxes from F6 and introduces candidates to stamp taxes. As this is an optional paper, aimed at those requiring/desiring more than basic tax knowledge for their future professional lives, the syllabus also extends the knowledge of income tax, corporation tax, capital gains tax and inheritance tax to encompass, further overseas aspects of taxation, the taxation of trusts and additional exemptions and reliefs. Computations will normally only be required in support of explanations or advice and not in isolation. Candidates are not expected to concentrate on the computational aspects of taxation. Instead this paper seeks to develop candidates’ skills of analysis, interpretation and communication. Candidates are expected to be able to use established tax planning methods and consider current issues in taxation.
