Received via email from CCIQ

On Tuesday, 6 May we received news that the Deputy Premier, Jackie Trad would be announcing that JobKeeper Payments will be exempt from Payroll Tax.

This is something that collectively we have been advocating for, and we are thrilled the voices of our small business community have been listened to.

We understand that this will not impact every business, but for many, it will be potentially saving them additional tax, due to accessing the Jobkeeper stimulus payments, which as we know is designed to help businesses afloat and their staff employed. 

This is a great win for business and one we hope that will lead the way for the adoption of our recovery plan. 

Thank you for your ongoing support and collaboration. We look forward to continuing to use our united voices to spur the Government into action.
