CHIEF MINISTER FOR THE AUSTRALIAN CAPITAL TERRITORY

LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY QUESTION

Question No. 189

Debt Write-offs - Liquor Licence Fees

MS FOLLETT - Asked the Chief Minister upon notice on 26 March 1996:

In relation to the answer to Question on Notice No. 123 (Act of Grace payments), on 23 March 1995 you wrote off $9,946, and on 10 November 1995 you wrote off $4,176 which related to Liquor Licence Fees which were, allegedly, irrecoverable -

1) In each case, who was the beneficial recipient of the write-off.

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.
