Corporate Australia is getting tarnished by the banking royal commission, according to former federal treasurer Peter Costello. He says the banks survived the global financial crisis so unscathed that they became complacent, while the likelihood that the federal government’s full company tax cuts package will be passed by the Senate is looking highly unlikely because of the royal commission. James Pearson, the head of the Australian Chamber of Commerce & Industry, says companies in other sectors should not have to miss out on tax cuts because of failings in the financial services sector.
