BUDGET 2016/17: A Budget Of Targets

CraigGeneral, Tax

As the Treasurer foreshadowed, this is a budget of targets – a big, long-term crafted budget designed to give enough pre-election glow but with structural measures to reign in spending and reduce concessions.

Highlights included:

  • Company tax rate reduced to 25% over 10 years
  • Increase in tax discount for unincorporated small business to 16% over 10 years
  • Small business entity threshold increase to $10m from 1 July 2016
  • $1k GST exemption on imported goods abolished from 1 July 2017
