Text too small?

Specialist accountancy website Netprophet.co.nz reports this week on a property developer charged with tax avoidance after $5 million of "loans" were found to be income.

It also looks at a further ruling on income splitting by the Tax Review Authority after an anaesthetist was found to have structured her affairs in a way which constituted tax avoidance.

Tax options to help New Zealand set up an international finance sector "hub" are canvassed in an options paper from Inland Revenue and we preview the Australian tax review as reports surface that details of it may be released ahead of next Monday's meeting.

In other news Asteron strongly signals in the latest amendment to its prospectus that it may soon close its KiwiSaver fund and Huljich Wealth Management re-launches two non-KiwiSaver funds.

The MYOB Business Monitor also reports that around a third of small and medium businesses have reported a revenue decrease over the last 12 months.

In people news the New Zealand Institute of Chartered Accountants (NZICA) announces two new executive appointments to its professional development team and in Practice Management, Allan Mearns has the sixth instalment in his series of "Your part in the tragedy".
