Home detention for a decade of tax offending

A North Shore man has been sentenced to 10 months home detention for failing to file GST and income tax returns for up to a decade.

David John Lovett was sentenced on 2 August on 20 charges of not filing returns for himself and his company Lovett Planning Limited, after pleading guilty to all charges, including 12 charges of not filing with the intent to evade.

Lovett Planning Limited was removed from the Companies Office Register in 2006 and not reinstated until 2018, however, Lovett continued to trade and issue invoices charging GST for resource management services.

No GST returns were filed between September 2008 and March 2018. No income tax returns were filed between 2009 and 2018.

The total tax shortfall from not filing GST and income tax returns was $340,644.90. Lovett reduced this by $220,000 before sentencing.
