Liberal Nationals Local Business Action Plan for Rowville

Jobs will be the centrepiece of an elected O’Brien Liberal Nationals Government with the announcement of the biggest reform to payroll tax in a generation.

Under the Liberal Nationals Local Business Action Plan, around 15,000 Victorian small businesses will be removed from the payroll tax system – a system which is a tax on jobs.

Small businesses in Rowville pay too much tax – and the bigger they grow, the more Victorians they employ, the more they pay. The Local Business Action Plan means a saving of up to $43,650 each year on payroll tax for small business.

Under the plan, an O’Brien Liberal Nationals Government will increase the threshold at which a business is liable to pay payroll tax to $1.6 million.

We will ensure Victoria is once again the small businesses capital of Australia and that Victoria’s COVID economic recovery will be small business-led.

A week after the Labor government announced they are abandoning 90 per cent of sole traders by providing them with no support, the Business Victoria website is still not accepting applications for grants from sole traders.
