John Malcolm Carr who holds both New Zealand and United States citizenship owns Cornish Point Development Limited (Co. No. 841571, Incorp. 24/02/97) which is the listed proprietor of at least seven New Zealand properties. The tax residency status of John M Carr has become a critical issue in the ongoing investigations by various NZ agencies, as it has become clear that he is involved through his companies in major property development – a number of which are owned by a Florida-based corporation of which he is both Principal and registered agent. (One automatically has New Zealand Tax Residency status if one resides in the country for more than 183 days over any 12-month period). His Attorney, Alan Bevin McKay, of Checketts McKay Law Limited, Cromwell, was the agent who acted for him and the company he directs – Shelf Company No. 10 Ltd – in the purchase of a 3 million dollar property – 92 M Greenwood Rd, Pakiri, near Wellsford - on 4 October 2005. Another company Mr Carr directs – Kinetiq Ltd – which is owned by the Florida corporation, owns two Auckland properties, one a luxury accomodation unit on Waiheke Island.
