Sydney conducts ‘red-light’ audit

Tax investigators examining books of brothels and strip joints

Accounting records have been confiscated at one of Sydney’s most well-known
brothels as tax investigators launched an audit of the adults-only economy in
Australia’s biggest city.

The audit has been undertaken over claims of rampant tax evasion by the adult
entertainment industry following a speech made two months ago by deputy tax
commissioner, Mark Konza.

The city’s biggest brothels and massage parlours are believed to be the
target of investigators.

The Sydney Morning Herald reported that tax investigators entered
one well known brothel in the inner city suburby of Surry Hills yesterday and
removed the documents.

The brother in question is believed to make about $9.6m (£4m) in revenue a
year.
