Home detention for tax evasion


An Auckland company director has been sentenced to eight months home detention with special conditions after evading paying nearly $239,000 in tax.

Guy Becker operated businesses selling hunting, camping and fishing equipment with online sales and a retail shop in Albany.

Between 2014 and 2020 Becker didn’t file GST returns worth more than $75,410 and from 2015 to 2020 didn’t file income tax returns of $163,565 - a total $238,975.

Inland Revenue made multiple attempts by phone and mail to contact Becker who chose not to co-operate with IR.

The special conditions imposed by the court on 2 August include engaging an accountant to prepare his returns.
