CSL’s CFO Gordon Naylor says the blood products group does not intend to reduce its manufacturing presence in Australia. However, he has conceded that CSL would have seriously considered building a $A500m plant in Australia if the nation’s 30 per cent corporate tax rate had been more competitive. CSL opted to build the facility in Switzerland, which has a company tax rate of 18 per cent. CSL has suggested that Australia adopt a tax rate of 10 per cent for advanced manufacturers.
