ATO kills huge liquor business overnight … 

We’ve been researching the circumstances of a once highly successful liquor manufacturing business, with a huge client base – domestically as well as around the world.

This business had grown and prospered for more than 50 years until this year.  This hard work was all undone overnight when it was wound-up by an aggressive ATO.

Our research indicates some or all of the situation could have been avoided with more thoughtful structuring and asset protection arrangements.

The business was wound up, more or less overnight, by the ATO.

50 years of hard work bought undone overnight.

Business Asset Protection, applying the research this case has uncovered, is offering free business structuring health checks for companies – particularly in high tax sectors such as liquor, with slow paying wholesale customers or those experiencing growing inventory levels.

ATO kills McGrath franchisee overnight … 

We’ve been researching the circumstances of a number of once successful real estate businesses which have recently gone into receivership, administration or closed.

One business, a McGrath franchisee with dozens of off the plan sales, a large rent roll and the backing of head office (seemingly), was killed by the ATO.

Another business, Castlecrag Realty Pty Ltd (receivers and managers appointed), trading as Stone Castlecrag is presently in receivership.  It is understood the owner was experiencing personal difficulties.

Our research, which we’d like to share with agents in competition, indicates some or all of each of these situations might have been avoided by more thoughtful structuring and asset protection arrangements.

The McGrath business was wound up, more or less overnight, by the ATO.

The Castlecrag business is seemingly in very real financial distress.

Business Asset Protection, applying the research these cases (and others) have uncovered, is offering free business structuring health checks for estate agencies – particularly in the current slow and falling market where finance is difficult to obtain, overheads are fixed and the present election cycles may be causing distress.

Meet the Biteriot / Caernarvon team: Bruce Johnston

Biteriot's accountant - Bruce Johnston (pre conviction)

Meet valued team member of Biteriot & Caernarvon Cherry – Bruce Johnston.

Bruce was once described this way:

Bruce Alan Johnston was a senior accountant for Newcrest Mining Limited, involved in the development of the Cadia East Mine.

Between 1 July 2010 and 27 August 2013, Mr Johnston prepared 156 invoices in the name of Bramph Consultancy Services. But no such entity existed, and the funds were placed into bank accounts controlled by Johnston.

The invoices were purported to be for consultancy services in relation to the Cadia Mine project. The total amount of money Johnston transferred into his accounts was $1,257,847. He gradually gambled the funds away.

Johnston used online betting agencies, and a phone app to place his bets. At the height of his gambling spree, Johnston was placing up to 100 bets a day on several sports.

The fraud was discovered when someone noticed that no GST was being charged on the invoices. Newcrest senior management spoke with Johnston about the matter on 21 November 2013.

The father-of-two confessed to the crime, and was arrested and charged on 25 July 2014.

Bruce, who partially succeeded Pamela Hall in accounts, was a trusted member of the Biteriot and Caernarvon team – handling accounts and dealing with grower payments and receipts and worked alongside fellow convicted fraudster Paula Neill, plus Fiona Hall & others.

It is unknown if Bruce met and knows the identity of the mysterious Claudio Brown?

Claudio is definitely a phenomenon – in fact anyone that is able to work 192hours a week – i.e. 27 hours a day is an intriguing individual – made all the more remarkable by the fact that Claudio Brown, according to his employer Caernarvon Cherry Pty Ltd isn’t yet an adult (he’s under 18).
