George Alex, 50, and his son Arthur Alex, 23, as well as a number of co-accused, have been committed to stand trial in the Supreme Court over an alleged tax fraud syndicate, Perth Now reports.
The alleged syndicate operated between July 2018 and 2020 in both NSW and Queensland, and allegedly defrauded the Australian Taxation Office of $17.5 million.
George Alex is charged with conspiring to cause a loss to the Commonwealth alongside a number of co-accused, as well as with dealing with the property proceeds of crime.
His son, Arthur, is charged with conspiring with others to dishonestly cause a loss to the Commonwealth, and dealing with more than $1 million in what is believed to be the proceeds of crime.
Both will face the Supreme Court on February 11 where they will be arraigned. No pleas have been recorded.
