The Australian Labor Party will raise at least $A160bn in additional revenue over 10 years if it wins the next federal election. This would be boosted by $A35bn if Labor revoked company tax cuts that have yet to be legislated. Labor argues that the additional revenue would allow it to achieve a Budget surplus while increasing government spending in sectors such as health and education. Finance Minister Mathias Cormann has warned that Labor’s tax plan will have an adverse impact on jobs and investment.
