Abstract: 

On October 5, 2020, Strachans SA in Liquidation pleaded guilty to conspiring with U.S. taxpayers and others to hide income and assets in offshore entities and bank accounts from the IRS. The court sentenced Strachans.  Since 2008, Australia sought to arrest Philip Jepson Egglishaw, former owner of Strachans SA, for tax evasion and money laundering. Although he signed a plea deal on behalf of Strachans on August 14 and was named as a co-conspirator, he was not arrested by the U.S. on the Australian charges.
