Well, I thought not paying more tax than you should is sign of how things should be.

In fact, I vaguely remember somewhere reading that directors of a public company have a responsibility to not waste money unnecessarily, something about corporate responsibility in the Corporations Act (2001) or something like that...


There is a difference between legit minimisation and out and out theft.

My company paid over $190,000 in tax last FY (a properly accounted for "minimised" amount within the letter of the law) with revenues that are miniscule compared with Googles in this country.

Google paid around $70,000 ?

Sure, its within the law, but is it Fair?
