Australian business leaders have warned that jobs and investment will be at risk unless proposed changes to the corporate tax regime are implemented. Business Council of Australia CEO Jennifer Westacott says the US will attract more capital at the expense of Australia after the US Senate passed the tax package of President Donald Trump. The US corporate tax rate will be slashed from 35 per cent to around 20 per cent, prompting business groups to urge the Australian Labor Party and crossbenchers to support the proposal for an across-the-board reduction in Australia’s company tax rate to 25 per cent.
