According to data released by the Australian Tax Office in Dec 2015, this company was one of 579 local and foreign-based companies that paid no tax in Australia in 2013-14. 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.
