30 Jun 09 Assistant Treasurer comments on tough global position against tax evasion
In a media release issued on 30 June 2009, the Assistant Treasurer, Senator Nick Sherry, confirmed that following the Second Conference on the Fight against International Tax Fraud and Evasion held in Berlin, Germany, the Rudd Government continues to strongly support the tough global position against tax evasion taken by the 19 participant countries.
"The G20 has delivered a very strong message to the global community – tax havens, tax avoidance and tax evasion are unacceptable. They are a risk to the integrity of each domestic tax system but also a risk to the global financial system as a whole," Senator Sherry said.
