CEO UPDATE
Federal Government to fast track tax relief for small and medium businesses
"Small" businesses - those that employ up to 19 full time staff - comprise 98% of all businesses in South Australia. The building and construction industry could never function without them, so it was pleasing to see the Federal Government announce tax relief for small and medium businesses will be delivered five years earlier than expected.

From 2021-22, businesses with a turnover below $50 million will be subjected to a tax rate of just 25%. More than 370,000 building businesses across Australia will be incentivised to invest more in their businesses, engage more tradies and train more apprentices.

Master Builders SA strongly welcomes this announcement. With an election not too far away, it will be interesting to see what other policies are released.
