The hardcore pornography and prostitution industries have been linked to money laundering, tax evasion and drugs.
“Two of the most profitable racketeering activities of organized crime are drug trafficking and money laundering. Gambling, prostitution, and pornography have also been major moneymakers.”
“The Internet, on the other hand, allowed anyone with an Internet connection to offer sex services almost anonymously, screen potential prostitutes/clients, and avoid law enforcement. This has led to an explosion in the sex trade that lawmakers have struggled to regulate.
“Similarly, interest in pornography made available via the Internet has caused a dramatic boom in the legal sex industry. Unfortunately, this has also created a great deal of gray market pornography / prostitution in which any person with a camera may attempt to assert that they are making a film rather than soliciting someone for prostitution, or prostitutes may claim that they are merely attempting to perform as adult models or actresses.”
The marketing of hardcore pornography and prostitution services via websites by those holding both US and New Zealand citizenship raises a number of tax issues, when such persons operate as sole directors and shareholders of companies incorporated in New Zealand as well as publicly listed and private investment companies in the US.
The Companies Act 1993 requires all directors of New Zealand companies to record their residential addresses in their Annual Returns and a failure to do so and/or to promptly update such addresses can lead to them being convicted of breaches of the Act.
Mr John Malcolm Carr records his residential address for years on his company’s annual returns as 289, Cornish Point Road, Cromwell, 9384 , New Zealand.
Is this his residential address?
It is a Bed & Breakfast Accomodation Facility in Cromwell.
