The federal government intends to bring forward a reduction in the tax rate for small and medium enterprises. Prime Minister Scott Morrison is set to announce that the SME tax rate will be reduced to 26 per cent in 2020-21 and 25 per cent in 2021-22. The full tax cuts package for SMEs was originally slated to take effect in 2026-27. The government began looking into fast-tracking SME tax cuts under former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull, after it dropped plans to reduce the tax rate for large companies.
