The Council of Small Business Australia (COSBOA) has expressed relief, buy viagra following the announcement that the Carbon Tax was finally scrapped last Thursday, healing following three failed attempts by the Abbott Government since the election in September 2013.
Peter Strong, Chief Executive of COSBOA said that the decision has finally provided some certainty and would allow small businesses to plan and budget for the future.
“Issues about the environment remain a great concern for the small business community, but the abolition of the Carbon Tax will finally put the debate and doubts to rest, allowing businesses to move forward with clarity and confidence,” Mr Strong said.
“The scrapping of the Carbon Tax will also provide undeniable financial benefits, with reports from some electricity and gas suppliers already confirming that electricity prices for residential and small business customers will fall.
“Small businesses are already under enough pressure in their day-to-day management and continue to struggle with things like the collection of superannuation, contract laws and burdensome compliance and regulation demands, all of which have been designed by and for thriving big businesses.
“The Carbon Tax debate has not just threatened to increase to the price of essential resources like electricity, gas, water and transport, but has resulted in further ambiguities and strains for Australia’s two-million small business owners and operators.
“The scrapping of the Carbon Tax presents one big challenge for the environment, but one less burden for small business,” concluded Mr Strong.
