A 2017 Four Corners investigation revealed that billions of litres of water purchased by taxpayers to save Australia's inland rivers are instead being harvested by some irrigators to boost cotton-growing operations, in a policy failure that threatens to undermine the $13 billion Murray-Darling Basin Plan. The pumping of this environmental water means taxpayers have in some cases been effectively subsidising already wealthy agricultural interests, including those of this company.

According to data released by the Australian Tax Office in Dec 2018, this company was one of 2,159 local and foreign-based companies that paid no tax in Australia in 2016-17. Please note however that companies pay income tax on profits, not revenue (total income). While some companies use tax havens and loopholes to avoid paying their fair share of tax in Australia, other companies that paid no tax have perfectly legitimate reasons.
