On Wed 18 September 2019, Angus Grigg and Neil Chenoweth published an article in the Australian Financial Review entitled: Chinese Billionaire hid $170m from the ATO. This was the day the Federal Court gave it’s reasons, for its Monday 16.9.19 decision, to freeze Mr Huang’s assets. There is an interesting ‘back story’ regarding Mr Huang’s political donations and allegations of interfering in Australian politics. The AFR ran related stories on 19.9.19 and 24.9.19.

See below for the article, including insight into China extending, to Hong Kong, its ‘reservation’ to assisting in the collection of tax debts (this reservation being, presumably, under the Multi-lateral Instrument).
