Small business Big problem….

2nd April 2016. Ever tried to get a small business off the ground in Australia. Every step of the way bureaucracy, legality, and banking is there trying to stop you. The parasites are out in force trying to suck every dollar out of the venture by the imposition of obscure, unnecessary, and ridiculous imposts and costs generated by a host of unnecessary drones. ‘I looked for an inspirational quote, but then I lost the inspiration’

It’s a joke, isn’t it?…

16th August 2015. After spending millions of dollars big-noting themselves in a Senate Enquiry, the committee in charge is recommending that the Multi-National Corporations who are serial tax avoiders be named and shamed. Is that the best they can do ? ‘I don’t make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts.’

Ever Been Had…

3rd August 2015. The big pharmaceutical companies in Australia made $8 billion sales last year, received $3.5 billion in government subsidies and paid $85 million tax – Oh and of course they were very generous political donors. ‘What have we got – taxation by confession’

I’m Back…

22nd July 2015. Well back after a long sabbatical while getting a bit disillusioned with the state of the nation. Currently in my view we have the worst Prime Minister we have ever had, the current government is the worst we have ever had, and the current opposition is the most ineffectual we have ever had. The country is in a race to the bottom and like leemings many of the population are following. The rich are getting richer, the poor are getting poorer, corporations are dodging billions in tax and the country is existing as a service industry selling over priced overseas goods and services to other Australians. Sitting back and saying nothing – achieves nothing

Taxing time…

26th may 2013. There is increasing evidence that most international companies are tax avoiders. Using the wealth generated by avoiding tax to contrive ever more devious schemes to continue to do so. Enough is enough… ‘Taxation with representation ain’t so hot either’

Lack of Trust…

25th January 2013.Recent articles have outlined the rort that is the family trust tax system. Not for butchers, bakers, and candlestick makers. The well heeled and their tame lawyers and accountants have been driving a horse and cart through the tax system for years. Never mind the country is in good hands, the wages and salaries earner will prop us up. “There are 3 types of accountant – those that can count and those that can’t.”

Running for cover…..

21st November 2012. Multinationals around the world are running for cover as governments belatedly discover that these companies have been driving a horse and cart between tax laws to avoid multi billions in taxes. Long overdue retribution appears to be on its way. ‘Taxation with representation ain’t so hot either‘
