Josh’s Shark Pool: meet the Treasurer’s tax advisors – Michael West

Look who’s advising Treasurer Josh Frydenberg on tax. The Australian Government’s “High Level Advisory Panel” is stacked with five tax types from EY, three from Deloitte, five from KPMG and seven from PwC. Michael West reports.

For the uninitiated, the reason this High Level Advisory Panel is funny is because a key activity of the Big Four accounting firms is advising their multinational clients on how to skive out of paying tax in Australia, a task which they undertake with flair, and by the billions.
