    The public officer is responsible for doing all things required by the company under section 252 of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 or the Regulations. In case of default they are liable to the same penalties. For example, the public officer is responsible for lodging the company tax return. If the tax return is lodged late the public officer may be liable for a late lodgment penalty.
