That's assuming they never bother to check. It's probably low on their list of priorities, but if there happens to be an inspection underway, a quick look at the records could reveal it.


Having you ever even been inspected? I have talked to them about once/yr for the last 5 years. One time they asked how many hours I worked. The other times they just asked to see my ARC and sign my name on their list. Yes, it is within their power to go into a buxiban and ask for everything but they don't (an infinitely low %) unless someone files a complaint.

I got the work permit in December. My employer never gave me receipts but my worry is the labour council will have sent my paperwork to the tax office after granting me a work permit and thus the tax office will be "expecting" my payment.

Perhaps someone else will know if there is anything that will actually happen if you didn't file. The only thing that I can think of is that you won't be able to get a new work permit until you have cleared this up.

If you want to make sure that this is settled then go down to the tax office and say the following. I started work in Dec 2014 and I am not sure if my taxes were reported in Dec 2014 or Jan 2015. Let them look it up and decide if you need to take care of anything at the tax office for 2014. End of story.

DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT BRINGING BEING PAID IN CASH OFF THE BOOKS. Most likely they will just tell you to go away since they are helpful and good people but it is always possible that they start an investigation and I don't think any side wins in that case.

I absolutely agree it's unlikely to be a problem, but if they happen to find out (even by an anonymous tip), and for whatever reason they're set on punishing the employer, there's nothing to stop them from doing it. If they're set on punishing the employee, the only thing that might stop them is the defense that it's not a "serious violation".

Sorry to get so off topic, OP :oops:
