Wesfarmers Ltd.’s (WES.AU) discount department store Target will begin shipping goods directly from China to Australian internet shoppers by September, allowing them to avoid paying Australia’s goods and services tax, The Australian newspaper reported Friday.

The newspaper quotes Target Managing Director Dene Rogers saying the company was setting up facilities in China to ship its merchandise to Australian customers. The goods and services tax is exempt from imported products costing less than 1000 Australian dollars (US$989).
China is the new giant with mcdonalds popping up on every corner and if Google can get away with minimizing tax in Australia then why not target- i wish the smaller company’s could be so brazen about flaunting the rules – hey its just an opinion
