As per as some fresh reports, the Department of Immigration & Citizenship (DIAC) of Australia is starting a clampdown on the foreign employees suspected to be behind the widespread cases of tax violations in the country. Available information suggests that the concerned organization–the Australian Taxation Office (ATO)–will probe the holders of close to 27 classes of permits even as the same will cover the records of about 1 million permit holders to be duly compared with the existing tax office data.
The investigation will see the authorities gathering the nation’s permit holders’ details even as students and trained manpower from abroad–arriving in the country on the 457 permit scheme–will be appropriately covered in the permit crackdown by the ATO.
The ATO has reportedly disclosed that the DIAC will offer comprehensive records of the Australian permit holders for 2012, 2013 & 2014 revenue years to it even while the same will involve duly matching & scrutinizing the information records electronically for the objective of discovering the abuse & any other nonconformity involving the payment & lodgment, via the national taxation laws.
Investigation to make certain national immigration program’s integrity
Meanwhile, an official spokesperson for the incumbent immigration minister has apparently observed that the object of such a probe by the ATO is to learn if the aliens in Down Under are abiding by with tax laws. Canberra is also keen to promise the nationals that the existing employment-opportunities in the country are not being grabbed by those aliens who lack legal employment rights in the nation, he added.
