Published Date: 1 Feb 2018
The criminal prosecutions of Michael Milne and Raymond Osborne have been well publicised. The superseding of Project Wickenby by the Serious Financial Crime Taskforce, along with the so-called Panama Papers investigation, would suggest that tax crime prosecutions will continue to increase. Indeed, it has already been announced via mainstream media that the ATO is currently investigating at least 800 taxpayers. This article examines the matter of R v Osborne and conducts an analysis of the judgment, ideally to contribute to a better understanding of the law of tax crime and thus to help avoid further inappropriate prosecutions of tax crimes in the future.
