AUSTRALIA: ACCOUNTANTS AT CENTRE OF MULTI-MILLION-DOLLAR ‘DUMMY DIRECTOR’ SCAM SHUT DOWN

On 25 March, ABC News reported that an accounting firm at the centre of a massive tax avoidance scheme which exploited homeless and drug-addicted people has had its registration cancelled. It used homeless and other vulnerable Australians as “dummy directors” of companies in order to shield the real directors from the tax office and other creditors.  Authorities cancelled the registration of The Associates Vic Pty Ltd and a number of individual accountants.

If you’d like to help me buy that (badly needed) new laptop or, even better, a new desktop to replace the one now 5,000 miles away – https://www.buymeacoffee.com/KoIvM842y
