Essential Services, Fair Taxation & Finances

Fair taxation is essential to being able to fund the priorities outlined in this New England Policy Platform, and the Australia Government’s services more generally. This is key given that the Australian Government provides the majority of funding for State, Territory and Local Government services (such as health, education, policing, housing) and infrastructure.

Fair taxation is essential to being able to fund the priorities outlined in this New England Policy Platform, and the Australia Government’s services more generally. This is key given that the Australian Government provides the majority of funding for State, Territory and Local Government services (such as health, education, policing, housing) and infrastructure.

In order to achieve this, I will particularly seek taxation reforms that can close the significant loopholes which are allowing corporate and high net worth individuals to avoid and minimise taxation through off-shoring arrangements to low- and no- tax havens.

The additional taxation revenue realised from these measures needs to be applied simultaneously to needs-based funding of essential services and reducing government debt to acceptable levels. 

In parallel, I will actively support the development of philanthropy, giving and community enterprise to complement government backed and funded services, infrastructure and support.
