The Australian Labor Party has announced changes to its policy to abolish cash refunds for franking credits, stating that full and part-pensioners will be exempt from its proposal. The backdown is expected to reduce the savings that Labor expects the policy to generate from $A59 billion to $A55.7 billion over the first decade of its implementation. Also exempt from the policy will be any self-managed superannuation fund that has at least one pensioner or other allowance drawing from it prior to 28 March.
