Deregulation, tax reform and changes to the industrial relations system are expected to be the federal government’s priorities when the coronavirus pandemic abates. The Coalition is of the view that the economy will need reforms of a similar magnitude to those implemented by the Hawke-Keating Labor government three decades ago. Treasurer Josh Frydenberg notes that Australia’s company tax rate remains high by global standards, although he has ruled out any changes to the GST at present. The government has also signalled its intention to revive the Ensuring Integrity Bill.
