Speech - The Government's Tax Agenda, Address to the Queensland Tax Forum
Yesterday the Assistant Treasurer gave an address to the Queensland Tax Forum on the Government’s tax agenda. Here is an excerpt:
Today I want to focus on Australia’s tax system and how it compares internationally. I want to add to what the Treasurer said earlier in the week about why we must reform Australia’s tax system. I will also explore the work we are doing through the tax reform process.
Finally, I want to share with you the areas where tax reform is well underway – by stimulating small business, ensuring Australia remains a competitive financial centre in the region and making sure multinationals meet their Australian tax obligations.
