Let’s see if they pay tax on their revenue

In one of the more funny yet confusing stories of the day, the AFR has reported that:

Emma Alberici joins insurance comparison website.

That’s the confusing part.  This is the funny part:

she’ll head up strategy and communications.

Also in her brief: government relations.

Hey.  Why not put her in charge of finance and tax.  She probably knows as much about those as she does strategy.

According to the AFR:

Compare the Market, described as a “fintech” in the release, is owned by UK-headquartered Budget Holdings, whose main business vehicle and home insurance.

A subsidiary of a foreign company eh.

TAFKAS waits with baited breath to see the reporting on the accounting and tax paid by this group.  Can’t wait.

    Was that baited or bated breath?

    Compare the Market can’t afford meerkats any more?

    With some extra makeup there could be some resemblance.

    Some ‘research’ in Italy must be on offer.

  5. Entropy

    Smells like a holding pattern/gardening leave position.

    You know, like how ALP connected get “government relations manager” jobs in major Contracting firms, or both ALP or LNP get partner jobs in EY, PWC, KPMG et al for a few years before retiring to the fold when the heat is off.

    She will end up back in the loving arms of Aunty eventually.

    So many fingers in so many liquidisers, I mean, pies.

    CBD column in the smh says her ABC payout was only around 300k.

  8. Damon

    If she needs a job after a lifetime with the ABC, she has no business commenting on money.

    Also in her brief: government relations.

    Now there’s the real story which both the AFR & TAKFAS missed:

    Why does such a business feel the need to make representations to government?

    Their only dealings with government entitites should be with the tax man and the regulator.

    And this is a relatively minor company that feels the need for such a position; imagine what goes on up the corporate food chain.

    We are sleepwalking into Fascism.

    is this a step up or down do you reckon?

    after all, she was nominiated for a Walkey Award (or 2)

    from the cut and thrust of ABC, government “journalism”, to hocking insurance

    mind you, until she’s in a job with measurable outcomes you can’t really tell can you?

  11. Pyrmonter

    Cute adverts, but company with an interesting rep.

  12. Suburban Boy

    Compare the Market Pty Ltd lodged a financial report (of 32 pages) with ASIC on 16 September 2020.

    If you really want to satisfy your curiosity about the company’s accounting and taxes, fork out just $42 and it’s all yours.

    It might smell like bait, but to all intensive purposes, they’re the same thing.

  14. Des Deskperson

    ‘CBD column in the smh says her ABC payout was only around 300k.’

    Probably a years’ salary, a fairly standard payout for an ABC empolyee at her level and with her length of service.

  15. Bruce of Newcastle

    Oh great. Spam phone calls from Screechy selling insurance. Oh joy.

  16. Ubique

    And just who is going to be interested in insurance comparison from a Marxist-Leninist-Maoist perspective? That is apart from the ABC, ACTU, ALP, the Greens, Business Council of Australia, Minerals Council of Australia, CSIRO, and the Victorian, ACT and Queensland governments?

  17. The BigBlueCat

    She has all the qualifications doesn’t she? Pair of t*ts, euro-lesbo look, and she’s been on their ABC. What more can you want?

  18. Econocrat

    Easy to check.

    tax = revenue × 30 per cent

  19. Squirrel

    Does this mean the Russian meerkats will have to admit to their privilege and transition?

  20. Spurgeon Monkfish III

    Does this mean the Russian meerkats will have to admit to their privilege and transition?

    Too late. Soviet meerkats declared them to be bourgeois counter revolutionary capitalists and had them liquidated.

    Hence the hiring of Alberscreechee.
