Queensland business and jobs at risk after company tax cut defeat

Wednesday 22 August, 2018 | By: Dan Petrie

The Queensland Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCIQ) remains committed to championing the cause for a reduction in the company tax rate.


CCIQ Head of Industry Dan Petrie said that the headline corporate tax rate in Australia at 30% is simply too high and only makes Australia uncompetitive next to comparable countries.

“Ideology and anti-business sentiment among some senators within Australia’s upper house have enshrined a benchmark that is a disincentive to invest.

“Efforts to quarantine large business from a sensible and modest tax cut creating a two-tiered tax system based on some senators’ views on corporate Australia represent an all too familiar low in public debate,” Mr Petrie said.

CCIQ notes that Australia’s economic competitiveness is hardly enhanced by a narrative that says business is good except if it is an organization that turns over $50 million

“The senate have effectively said Australia is not open for business and the defeat of this bill sadly represents more of the same from a senate which serves as nothing more than an obstructionist cabal of ideologues who wouldn’t know the first thing about business," Mr Petrie said.

    Tanda bahwa ejakulasi semakin dekat adalah ketika testis mendekati tubuh. Jika Anda meregangkannya - untuk menjauhkan mereka dari tubuh - Anda akan membantu pasangan Anda untuk menunda ejakulasi. Kelilingi bagian atas testis di antara ibu jari, telunjuk dan jari tengah lalu tarik dengan lembut dan tegas ke arah yang berlawanan dengan tubuh. Karena testis sangat sensitif terhadap tekanan, Anda harus mengobatinya dengan hati-hati, jadi tanyakan pada pasangan Anda bahwa gerakan ini tidak menyakitkan.

    Queensland private company and the more extensive network are shouting out for real change, not piecemeal mollification approach went for pacifying legislators with absolutist positions on each test this nation faces. Belief system and hostile to business notion among a few representatives inside Australia upper house have cherished a benchmark that is a disincentive to contribute.
