The May 2018 Budget papers show that company tax revenue is forecast to be $A100.7bn in 2021-22, compared with $A83.5bn in 2017-18. The rally in commodity prices has bolstered company tax revenue, although economists caution that this may not be sustainable. In addition, the corporate tax take could fall in future years if the government passes legislation for an across-the-board reduction in the company tax rate. The government expects companies to increase capital investment as a result of the tax cuts, but factors such as a recession could dampen investment intentions.
