Budget 2018-19: Small business wants a fair go, a level playing field and to get on with the job

The Australian Small Business and Family Enterprise Ombudsman welcomes the Government working towards a level playing field for small business. Initiatives targeting tax avoidance and illegal phoenixing will empower small businesses who are doing the right thing to compete.

Small businesses employ 4.7 million Australians. The Government’s focus on apprenticeships, traineeships and the mature aged workforce will provide a wider pool of resources, and the continuation of the instant asset write-off is welcome.
