Ex-tax ads land reseller in court

Ex-tax ads land reseller in court

Z-Tek Computers will front court in August courtesy of the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) for allegedly advertising computers at a price that did not include the sales tax component.

The ACCC alleges that advertisements placed by Z-Tek in a monthly PC magazine displayed the cost of various products without including the sales tax, thus failing to advertise the total cost.

"Retailers have to make it clear what the full price is or that there are other charges involved," said an ACCC spokesperson.

ACCC is alleging Z-Tek contravened sections 52, 53(e) and 53C of the Trade Practices Act.

A directions hearing will be held in the Federal Court, Melbourne, on 1 August.
