"We are seeing people in the industry collude to exploit the rebate and share the benefit through manipulating prices charged for grapes, wine or services," Second Commissioner Bruce Quigley said. "We believe these arrangements breach the anti-avoidance provisions of the GST Act. They appear to be against the intent of the rebate which is to assist small wine producers. "The recent favourable decision in the case of SJ Buller Pty Ltd and Commissioner of Taxation supported the ATO's view of the law and our continued need to focus on these types of WET arrangements" Mr Quigley said.
