This course is in three parts. There is an examination at the end of each part.
The examination for Part I relates to Part I only. The examination for Part II relates to Parts I and II. The examination for Part III relates to all three parts.
It is unlikely that you will pass the examination in this Part if you have not previously completed Part I.
You may purchase each part individually or purchase a bundle of all three parts together at a discounted price.
A bundle may not be purchased retrospectively i.e. after you have already purchased one or two Parts.

Some in clandestine companies combine;
Erect new stocks to trade beyond the line;
With air and empty names beguile the town,
And raise new credits first, then cry ’em down;
Divide the empty nothing into shares,
And set the crowd together by the ears.
This course is for all those who work in, manage, own or control companies in all jurisdictions and the bankers, lawyers and others that deal with and regulate them.
Business structures, including corporations and partnerships, are intended to encourage enterprise and to protect honest entrepreneurs.
Trusts are intended to protect the assets of families from unlawful interference and other problems.
In each case there is also a measure of the modification of the tax position as against if such structures were not to be used: some of those changes benefit the company and its owners and others benefit the state.
However, as with all things, there are those that abuse the privileges that such structures afford them. They are used as vehicles for a wide range of criminal offences of which the most obvious – but far from the only – one is tax evasion.
Also, because these structures have an identity (in some cases they are, in law, a person), they are also the target for criminals.
In this course, we explain
a) what corporations, partnerships, trusts and other structures are
b) the terminology associated with them
c) the risks they present
d) the risks they face
and we do it all with context and historical perspective.
You will find out about asset forfeiture in 18th Century England, how capital flight was dealt with in 18th Century France – and see how much of what we imagine is recent has a long history.
You will learn the origins of trust law and why it is a cross-cultural phænomenon.
Also, you will learn why much of the criticism of certain professionals is unfounded – and where that criticism should be directed.
