Death and taxes and human stupidity
Transfer pricing is what enables my IT team's work to be charged to our Australian subsidiary where 90% of the support is needed. If that wasn't the case, the CFO would be demanding that we relocate to Australia - a fate worse than death.
It's not some kind of unmitigated evil - it's a normal accounting practise, especially where services are spread over multiple countries. The devil as always is in the details.
Meanwhile also in NZ, a combination of Police and SAP incompetence resulted in personal details of all firearms license holders being made available to any dealer who logged into the system - rumour has it that it wasn't just dealers either, but any bozo. Thanks very much Plod & SAP for handing out a shopping list to the local crims.
