Christchurch restaurateur Jonny Schwass admits $300,000 of tax offences

Christchurch restaurateur Jonny Schwass has admitted misapplying tax payments totalling more than $300,000 before his company went out of business last year.

Jonathon Charles Schwass, 46, pleaded guilty to 21 charges in the Christchurch District Court and was remanded for sentence on July 6.

Judge Simon Menzies asked for a pre-sentence report with an assessment of his suitability for home or community detention when he remanded Schwass at large – no bail was required.

Defence counsel Simon Shamy said Schwass was assisting with "other ongoing investigations" and a large amount of money may be paid to Inland Revenue before the sentencing.
