Following a year-long investigation by the Australian Taxation Office, CEO and CFO quit the electronics company after verdict.
Sony Australia has been sent into a state of disarray, rocked by a AU$53m tax bill and the resignations of both its CEO and CFO.
Following a year-long investigation by the Australian Taxation Office, the electronics company has been stung with a huge $21m in penalties and $32m in subsequent back taxes.
As a result of the verdict, ChannelNews Australia claims the company has already paid $26.8m back, after reporting a tax profit of $12.5m earlier this year.
ChannelNews also reports that Sony New Zealand managing director, Martin McManus, is set to replace the company's Head of Consumer Marketing, Nicolas Barendson, who quit less than a year into his role.
