LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY QUESTION
Question No. 189
Debt Write-offs - Liquor Licence Fees
2) Why were the amounts written off.
MRS CARNELL - The answer to the Member's question is as follows:
1) The write-off of these debts was performed by the Commissioner for ACT Revenue as delegate of the Chief Minister and therefore the identity of the recipients has not been disclosed due to the secrecy provisions of the Taxation (Administration) Act 1987.
2) In the first instance the company was deregistered and had no realisable assets and in the second instance the person was declared bankrupt and the administrator advised that there would be no dividend payable.
