Business support vital as border closure extended


Release Date: 18/08/2020
With border closures now extended until 1 December, the TCCI is calling on the Government to act decisively to support all Tasmanian businesses.
 
“While today’s announcement was not unexpected, I’m sure it will still come as a shock to many in the business community,” Mr Bailey said.
 
“The Government is offering businesses a range of different support measures and these are all certainly welcome.  However, it’s time the Government looked at its broader policy settings.  We’re living in a post-COVID world, but the Government still has in place pre-COVID tax and regulatory settings. 
 
“The Government needs to urgently look at payroll tax relief as a start as well as other measures to help maintain business confidence and generate jobs.
 
“The business community stands ready to work with Government to help Tasmania through the challenging times ahead.”
