The Daily Telegraph can reveal the Turnbull government will reap up to $9 million more in capital gains tax revenue by approving the sale of VDL to the Chinese firm than it would to an Australian-based buyer.
The sale could net the federal government another tax windfall, after the controversial Van Diemen’s Land Dairy Company purchase by a Chinese businessman tipped an instant $27 million tax benefit into the government’s coffers.
But The Daily Telegraph has learned that there are as many as 12 major Chinese companies currently running the numbers on the properties.
They include Chongqing Hondo Agriculture Group, which has a kitty of $100 million ready to splash on cattle stations; Shandong Delisi Food Com, which in September paid $140 million for a 45 per cent stake in NSW beef farm Bindaree Beef Group; and Tianma Bearing Group, owned by one of China’s richest men, Xingfa Ma
