GST fraudsters caught out

Goods and service tax (GST) fraudsters are more than likely than ever to be caught out  this year, as the ATO plans to increase its audits on GST refund claims by small businesses and  investigate cases of serious evasion. As a result of government funding, an extra 11,500 cases will be completed in the 2011-12 financial year. Last year, 28 people were prosecuted for more than $17 million worth of GST-related fraud offences.
