[Extract] the recent decision of Hill J. in CPH Property Pty Ltd & Ors v FC of T and Consolidated Press Holdings Ltd & Anor v FC of T (see Tax Week 688 and 689 (1998)) were greeted with derision by most elements of the Australian media. The wins made by the kerry Packer controlled companies were sensationalised as further examples of the rich being able to avoid paying their dues. It was alledged that during the years in question, Packer would now just be paying between $2.87 and $30.55 in tax, much less than the average battler, and thus the decisions vindicated the utilisation of loopholes to avoid tax by the well-advised rich.
