Finance Minister Mathias Cormann says the Federal Government’s corporate tax cuts are needed to ensure that Australian businesses are internationally competitive. The Government will seek the Senate crossbenchers’ support for the tax package ahead of the May 2018 Budget, and it will require nine of them to vote in favour of the bill.
