The deputy commissioner of taxation has applied for a windup order for North Sydney-based publisher 4Square Media in the Federal Court this week.
The Australian Tax Office noted that the company may also be known as Smart Office Media and Story Maker Marketing.
David Richards is the CEO and editorial director of 4Square Media.
The company publishes the websites smarthouse.com.au and channelnews.com.au and publishes digital magazines that are distributed via retailers including JB Hi-Fi and Good Guys.
Reached for comment this morning, Richards told Mediaweek: “4Square Media has no debt, operates from cashflow and last year delivered a profit of over $200,000. The issue with the ATO has been resolved.”
4 Square Media calls itself a content creation company with a deep understanding of technology.
The biography on its website says:
“Established in 2002, the directors previously built the largest technology media company in Australia and prior to that the third-largest public relations group, which became Ogilvy PR.
“Today, we create digital content whether it be a video, digital magazine, e-book, website or EDMs for distribution to large audiences, our clients are some of Australia’s biggest technology companies.”
