Security boss is accused in tax fraud sc Melbourne
44 year old cecurity company boss Harry Korras avoided spending time in jail by admitting, he had taken part in machination in the Australian Taxation Office. Korras security company, co-founder of ACG Security, avoided the payment of ATO funds for 4 years (2011-2014) by employing two subcontractors who pay their employees tax-free cash. Some workers considered, they had been employed by ACG Security, but, actually, they were employed by those subcontractors. ACG Security was bought by Spotless, and Korras worked there as an event manager for touring celebrities and a consultant. County Court of Victoria Judge Douglas Trapnell today informed, that Korras had not brought about the tax evasion scheme. But he pretended, he couldn't see it, leading the judge to believe his moral accountability remained high.
The judge took into account that Corras pays the money back to the ATO in full and the care that he provides to his mother, who for a long time struggled with health problems. He sentenced Korras to two and a half years in prison, with the right to be amnestied.
