The ATO has moved to sell a 331 hectare bushland vacant land holding at Lyons in the Logan district.

It is a holding owned by Sir Yii Ann Hii who is in a $64 million battle with the tax office.

It was bought with Kiew Chion Toing. The rural zoned holding is scheduled for February 1 auction unless the ATO's enforcement warrant is satisfied.  

The ATO auction advisory nots the owners are Yii Ann Hii and Kiew Chiong Tiong. It was purchased in 1996.

Sir Yii got around Brisbane with 1VIP numberplates on a 2005 Rolls Royce Phantom.

His palatial abode, Bromley, affectionately known as the landmark Hamilton Hill home that businessman Christopher Skase built, was listed for sale last year.

The hotel-like residence on Dickson Terrace was constructed by Skase and his wife Pixie in 1988 who quit Australia for Majorca in 1991.

Set around the medieval circular staircase as 50ft internal Bell tower, it last sold at $6.25 million in 2001.

Sir Yii took proceedings in the Kuala Lumpur High Court seeking a court declaration that he was domiciled in Malaysia from 2001 to 2009 and had been a local taxpayer. The Australian Tax Office had ruled in 2013 that he had abandoned his domicile with his tax resident status shifted from Malaysia to Australia. 

Hii’s lawyer has advised his client did not stay for more than six months in Brisbane, visiting his six children and looking into investments during that period.
