Course Details | Católica Porto Business School


The Intensive Taxation Programme is designed to provide students with advanced technical skills on taxation. It is equally expected to contribute to debunk the idea that all issues related to taxation can only be understood by specialist technicians in the field. The Programme will thus be a differentiating factor for all those who choose to attend it.


The main purpose of this programme is to provide knowledge in the field of taxation using a methodology that enables students to understand the true raison d´être and scope of tax rules. Subjects will thus be addressed from a practical perspective and supported by examples. Various possible scenarios and frameworks for the same concrete situation will be analysed in the light of the provisions of tax law, so that taxpayers can choose the option for taxation or the framework that best fits their taxation situation.

Who attends

Lawyers, Economists, Managers, Accountants, Certified Public Accountants, Auditors and Managers and all those who need tax tools for safety and as decision-support mechanisms.

The programme focuses on the practical application of tax laws and is well suited to a mix of professionals who deal with accounting, legal, financial, commercial and business matters in their daily life.

Candidates Profile
