The Australian Government has abandoned plans for large-scale tax reform underpinned by a rise in the GST, although it still wants to reduce personal income tax rates. However, Treasurer Scott Morrison has conceded that tax cuts will have to be much more modest than originally intended. He also said that any reduction in the company tax rate would have to be implemented over several years. Meanwhile, Treasury estimates that economic growth will slow by 0.35 per cent over four years if income taxes are not reduced.
