On page 1 of the March 29, 2020, edition, the article ‘AXE ON FIRM — Shepparton Accounting Company at Centre of Brazen Tax Scam Deregistered’ appeared with a photo of Mr Chris Baldwin.
It identified Mr Baldwin as the founder of Brown Baldwin, the accounting firm identified as the deregistered firm involved in the tax scam.
The News wishes to make it clear that Mr Baldwin was not the owner of Brown Baldwin at the time of its deregistration and he has not been involved or associated with that firm for many years.
Neither was he involved in the tax scam discussed in the article.
The News takes this opportunity to sincerely apologise to Mr Baldwin for any hurt or embarrassment the article may have caused him.
