Employer Bulletin | 6 November

Issue date

Labour Hire business owner, Surasak Pootinun, has been sentenced to five and a half years in jail after being found guilty of 69 different tax evasion and forgery charges involving nearly one million dollars. Surasak ran several labour hire businesses for growers and market gardeners in South Auckland. Over a three-year period Surasak deliberately filed false GST returns and failed to account for withholding tax. He also forged invoices and lied about expenses from various other sub-contactors which allowed him to claim additional costs in GST returns.  

In today’s Bulletin

•    Labour Hire business owner jailed
