A disgraced New Zealand businessman has been arrested for involvement in an alleged major tax fraud in Australia.

Former Blue Chip boss Mark Bryers, 62, based in Sydney, was one of 12 charged by federal police in Australia following an investigation into a tax fraud and money laundering ring.

An 18-month operation by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC), the Australian Tax Office and the Australian Federal Police resulted in a series of raids on Tuesday in New South Wales and Queensland.
