The Apple flat tax podcast

The Apple flat tax podcast

Summary: On this week's Technolatte podcast, the Australian team looks at the tax loopholes that Apple is quite good at using, how much information people hand over online, and iiNet's sale of its FttP network to NBN Co.


In what way could the tax code be just like Apple's products? Why is Spandas Lui worried about all the group voucher websites she buys from? And why is iiNet having a bit of a National Broadband Network (NBN) fire sale with its infrastructure?

All those questions and more are answered on this week's Technolatte podcast, as the Australian team discusses:

  • The word loophole is an emotional trigger word to get your

    thinking right. These are tax deductions and are no different than the deductions you take for your mortgage payment or your charitable contributions or your dependents. The only difference is that you don't qualify for as many as Apple does because you aren't a multinational corporation.
    • Plus we dont have the resources

      or Lobbyists to get these deductions in the code in the first place.
      Yes its only a matter qualifying right?
      LOL sure...
