SENATE ECONOMICS REFERENCES COMMITTEE Inquiry into the post-GFC banking sector QUESTIONS ON NOTICE Commonwealth Bank of Australia 9 August 2012 Senator Williams asked: a) After the Commonwealth Bank appoints a receiver, what happens to any monies that the owner of the business had set aside to fulfil the business’s GST obligations or which were otherwise necessary to meet the business’ GST obligations? b) After a business has been placed in receivership, has the Commonwealth Bank received any monies that had been set aside to fulfil the business’s GST obligations or which were otherwise necessary to meet the business’ GST obligations? c) If so, were these monies forwarded to the Australian Taxation Office? d) Does the CBA have any internal policies in place regarding businesses placed in receivership and their GST obligations?

"It is not necessary to bury the truth. It is sufficient merely to delay it until nobody cares -- Napoleon Bonaparte" This must have been the motto of the Australian Public "Masters" for years! The unelected have run the country. Look at the results. More bureaucracy and less democracy. That's how they created "stability" - a hung parliament is the perfect justification. And nothing really changes beyond the window dressing. "Great coats on - great coats off"... Their objective? "Maintain the status quo and our positions and pay rises, our power and security ie. basically more of the same while politicians come and go. We run this country - forget that at your peril. Don't call us/treat us like public servants." And they're nasty if you try to threaten them in any way - not really nasty publicly, of course. It's all behind closed doors - that's how political power works....

Thankyou to Denise and all BFCSA members, workers, staff, committee, friends and supporters around the world! A special thankyou to Denise for her assistance and ideas in this post. She is one very special person.   It's time for a "big push" to get our voices heard in Canberra :) PLEASE GET YOUR PENS OUT - IT'S LETTER WRITING TIME! - BIG TIME THIS TIME! The Australian Senate Inquiry into Post GFC Banking is due to issue a report on 31st October (less than three weeks away). The report will be a public document viewable on the Senate website. Now is a very good time to lobby politicians from the hearings if you want changes made as they will be discussing and preparing the report over the next few days/weeks: Please pass the word on to everyone you know. A non-partisan solution (minus the politics) is needed. Please encourage the Senators...

From: FOS Circular Autumn 2012: http://www.fos.org.au/centric/the_circular_9_home/lenders_mortgage_insurance.jsp Lender's Mortgage Insurance Our Terms of Reference and LMI policy claims Previous communication about LMI policy claims Terms of settlement FOS receives a number of disputes in which the applicant is in financial difficulty, the sale of a property securing their loan from the financial services provider (FSP) does not repay the loan in full and an unsecured shortfall debt remains. If there is a lender’s mortgage insurance (LMI) policy in place, the FSP may have made, or may intend to make, a claim on the policy after settlement of the sale of the security property. This article outlines FOS’s view on an FSP’s obligations in dealing with a customer in financial difficulty when the FSP has made a lender’s mortgage insurance claim or may potentially do so after the sale of the customer’s property.   Our Terms of Reference and LMI policy claims Under...

http://www.macrobusiness.com.au/2012/09/death-by-financial-rules/  The comments on articles in MacroBusiness are worth reading IMHO. Posted by Sell on News in Capitalism on September 15, 2012 | 41 comments     Surely the greatest misnomer in modern times is the term “financial de-regulation”. For at least 25 years, various business funded think tanks and mono-culture, conformist university economics departments have hailed its advantages, for the most part completely capturing the world’s business press. I know. I am actually a business journalist who was, until recently, in the mainstream media. I watched it first hand. This continuous and intense propaganda worked. It has even been successfully prosecuted after the GFC, the blame for which has been somehow laid at the feet of governments and not the financial institutions and private actors who actually caused it.   As I have long argued, the phrase is nonsense, always has been nonsense and always will be nonsense. Finance IS...

It is not unusual for an organisation to take steps to protect its brand through registering domain names that may have a likeness to the name or other aspects of the brand.       Question 2 (Hansard Ref: p. 64)   Senator WILLIAMS: You have given us the percentage of your customers who are impaired et cetera—a very good percentage.

National Anti-Corruption Plan  Corruption is a serious global problem, which has devastating impacts for individuals, families, communities and regions. It discourages investment and distorts markets, leading to depletion of resources for important community services like schools, hospitals and roads. In combating corruption, the Australian Government takes a leadership role at the international, regional and domestic levels. At the international level, Australia is a party to both the UN Convention against Corruption and the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention. Australia is a key member of the G20 Anti-Corruption Working Group having participated in the negotiation and development of the G20 Anti-Corruption Action Plan. In cooperation with China and Indonesia, Australia is currently leading a review of G20 priorities to strengthen international cooperation against corruption, and is also working on the development of the G20 Guide to Mutual Legal Assistance. Furthermore, Australia is an active member of the APEC Anti-Corruption Working Group and the...

I rise tonight to talk about what I consider to be the greatest oxymoron in Australia at the moment—that is, ethical banking. I wish to relate some of my experiences during the early 1980s when my family were involved in a foreign currency loan in Swiss francs. We drew down the loan in January 1985. Shortly after that, we saw the depreciation of the Australian dollar. There was only one way to protect yourself from those loans and that was to hedge your loan. I went to my bank manager, Peter Neil—a good man who lives out here near Goulburn these days—and requested that I hedge my loan. He informed me that I could not, that that would change our currency and you could do that only at rollover periods. The rest is history because Mr Neil was wrong. The bank had not trained their staff properly and it led to...

Comment: Australian's put their lives and everything they value at risk everytime they deal with an Australian Bank or the Australian legal profession. Both are a disgrace "with notable execeptions". It is like Russian Roulette. The risks are too high, according to those whose eyes have been opened to the truth about Australian banking culture. Our politicians, once again, "with notable exceptions" should also be ashamed of themselves. Not only did they not want to listen, not want to act but they systematically attempted to gag our political representatives who wanted to raise such issues in parliament. Those who participated in this disgusting conduct are a total disgrace. We will name and shame them if this conduct EVER happens again in OUR Houses of Parliament. Stay away from the Australian Banking and Financial Sector until a committed and thorough investigation followed by a total overhaul of the regulatory systems and a...

Posted by on in Bankers A Law Unto Themselves
Often when you tell people your story and plight with the banks or to the media- they comment - but you signed the papers. My next question to them is - so you think it is okay that fraud has been committed and that the Banks are profiting from it? Are you saying that the banks are above the law and should not be accountable to the rules set by the law of this country.  No matter which way you look at it - a crime has been commited and it needs to be investigated. Isn't that why we have laws for?  Crime is crime. No sugar coating of it or exceptions. When put that way to most people - they understand better and agree - if fraud has been committed - it needs to be investigated. So if you speak to the media - make sure you ask that question. Remain focused...

With Credit Card Losses at Record-Lows, Issuers Are Raking It In
Do most Australians assume that if you're over 18 you can drive a car and operate a credit card with safety? Neither are true as we've witnessed over and over again. Is the lack of proactive regulatory oversight due to a clear conflict of interest for the Australian Government?   This information (below) comes from a US site for a Credit Card Merchant Service. The site contains a lot of good information on international trends in credit card usage and the regulatory initiatives that are being trialled for the domestic economic management in a global marketplace.  It looks likely that Credit Card bonds will be issued at an increasing rate. My concerns are that this will: Increase consumer access to relatively unregulated credit at a high rate of interest Increase consumer exposure to serious debt related problems Increase the pressure on consumers to participate in imprudent credit card usage through advertising...

I was reading this article (link below at end) & was particularly concerned/apalled at one paragraph: "Variant says the Reserve Bank will come to the rescue of the big four Australian banks in a crisis because they are too important to fail." Is this why our banks treat us plebs (aka 'customers') with so much disdain & utter arrogance? The same attitude they displayed/presented/portrayed to the recent Senate Inquiry & those preceding inquiries? They believe they are too big too fail therefore they are above ALL laws in this unlucky country of ours? The next paragraph is quoting an Australian Analyst's perspective. I think she is caught up in the banks' hype & has not got a good grip on what is occurring in her own backyard so to speak. Then in her final paragraph this statement is made: "She noted that Australian banks were extremely profitable and now far less...
