PRRT changes may be leverage on One Nation

The Federal Government requires the support of at least one additional Senate crossbencher for its company tax package. Proposed changes to the Petroleum Resources Rent Tax were absent from the May 2018 Budget, and sources have confirmed that this was partially to provide the government with a bargaining tool amid concerns that One Nation may back down on its support for the tax cuts. The changes to the PRRT would only affect future oil and gas projects, but industry players want the reforms to be enacted before the next election in case Labor wins and opts to subject existing projects to the new regime.
