Business leaders have warned that the tax plan of US President Donald Trump highlights the need for tax reform to ensure that Australia remains internationally competitive. However, the Opposition has reiterated that it will not support the Federal Government’s proposal to progressively reduce the tax rate for all companies to 25 per cent, despite Trump’s plans to reduce the US company tax rate to just 20 per cent. Treasurer Scott Morrison says Australia will not be able to compete with nations such as the US and the UK unless Labor supports the tax package.
