Tax cut a relief for local businesses, Taylor says

Angus Taylor, the Liberal candidate for Hume, said last week’s Coalition announcement that it would deliver a 1.5 per cent company tax cut to help Australian businesses was a welcome relief for small business owners he had spoken to in the electorate, including Boorowa.

Mr Taylor spent Wednesday last week in Boorowa where he conducted a street stall and spoke with small business owners. He said that in recent months small business owners had repeatedly raised with him their concerns about diminishing business confidence, driven largely by increasing overheads and costs.

He said: “This initiative by the Coalition has very quickly struck a chord. Business conditions are not ideal at the moment. And we all know that in rural places, the communities are massively reliant on the success of their local businesses. The small business owners I spoke to today all raised the company tax reduction with me. It seemed to put a spring in their step. It is clearly a welcome injection of confidence for smaller rural economies. One person even told me that it gave him ‘hope for the future’.

“In order to prosper, Boorowa needs its small businesses to not only survive but thrive.

“I realise not every small business is incorporated, but even for those which are not, this is a serious sign that the Coalition is looking to help small enterprises that have been battling to stay afloat with massive increased costs in recent years. They need more support than this, but this is a good start.”

Mr Taylor said that helping small business was in “the Coalition’s DNA”.

“This announcement is consistent with our plan to create a huge number of huge jobs. This will help to grow the pie for everyone. It means more for all. This is what the Coalition is all about.”
