Thanks to the Audit reports Bainimarama was forced to release we can now see whose been paying all the taxes for Frank to use for vote buying. It’s you and me, paying VAT and other indirect taxes, not regime mates, the high income earners or big businesses paying company tax. In 2006, before the coup income tax and company tax totalled almost $450 million. In 2012 income tax and company tax had grown to only $493 million. Allowing for all the inflation, which we know from the prices we have to pay for basics has been high, this is a big fall in real dollars. Over the same period indirect taxes jumped from, $781 million to $1229 million. That’s an increase of 57%. This is what Frank calls ‘reform’.
