World news – African Union – Tax reform is key to reviving the NSW budget after the pandemic


. .

NSW Treasurer Dominic Beirut will participate in the state’s economic recovery in debt-financed spending and comprehensive tax reform, including the ambitious task of de-stamping Mission.

Mr. Perotit handed over his deferred budget for COVID-19 Tuesday with a record deficit of $ 16 billion and net state debt levels to reach $ 106 billion by 2024..

The state’s infrastructure pipeline will grow to $ 107 billion, which will include $ 812 million for investment in new social housing and $ 8. 7 billion for regional roads and transportation.

Mr. Beirutet said he wants to replace the stamp duty « as soon as possible » and will give homebuyers the opportunity to cancel the down payment in favor of a smaller annual property tax.

The Treasurer hopes other countries will follow suit and also move to imposing stamp duties.

Former Treasury Secretary Ken Henry told the Herald it would be « much better if all jurisdictions steer clear » across the country on stamp duty.. Dr. Henry chaired the review of Australia’s tax system, known as the Henry Review, which in 2010 recommended its replacement with land tax.

Dr. Henry said: « The model as I understand it makes sense and provides a good model for other countries to follow. ».

« There would be upfront cost in the budget with this kind of switch from stamp tax to annual property tax or land tax, but that’s an investment in a better tax system. ». With low interest rates, there is no better time for governments [to look into it].

The payroll tax will also be adjusted in NSW, with the rate reduced from 5. 45 percent to 4. 85 percent, which brings about an average corporate savings of $ 34,000 a year over the next two years.

The change will cost $ 2. Billion dollars for the state. The payroll tax eligibility threshold will also permanently increase from $ 1 million to $ 1. 2 million.

NSW will spend $ 29. 6 billion of its response to COVID-19 over the next five years, and a forecast by the NSW Treasury assumes that the vaccine will start appearing in the middle of next year..

20 percent of people in NSW are expected to be vaccinated by the end of the September quarter in 2021, and some social distancing restrictions will continue until the vaccine is widely available.

NSW has also allocated US $ 4. $ 4 billion for forest fire response and recovery measures after the terrible black summer fires and $ 4 billion for drought.

Mr Beirutet said that replacing the stamp duty with an annual land tax would pump up to $ 11 billion into the economy over four years..

He said that the stamp duty « impedes the economy at a time that we need to suffocate completely » and that the government « will turn the theory into the first firm step..

The government will seek to consult with the community on its proposed model for replacing the transfer tax through March.

The current stamp duty privileges of first home buyers will also be replaced by a grant of $ 25,000, with the option to use the funds to renew the property..

New South Wales will continue its asset recycling program and will invest the sale of its remaining stake in WestConnex into its debt settlement account and will launch a survey study on the privatization of tax revenue from NSW Lotteries.

The government will also invest dividends from state-owned companies into the offset account, which has a balance of $ 11 billion and that will grow to $ 70 billion over the next decade..

Each adult NSW will also be awarded four separate $ 25 digital vouchers to use in restaurants, in attractions, and the arts in a $ 500 million program to support the business.

More than US $ 337 million will be spent to hire teachers in all public schools to help students who struggle after home learning and free preschool will be extended to 44,000 children.

Judy McKay, leader of the New South Wales Labor Party, said the budget is about « reducing workers’ wages [and] privatizing public assets. ».

“There are a lot of short-term measures announced in this budget, but after March when we see JobKeeper going downhill, what will happen to people in this state – 300,000 people – ???” Who are looking for long-term safe jobs? There is nothing for them in this budget. « .
