How have SMEs benefited from the latest Federal Budget?

May 10th, 2016

On May 3 this year, the government released the latest Federal Budget that was touted as making major improvements to the current Australian economic landscape. For many SME owners, and employees for that matter, it has done just that.

SMEs will benefit greatly from the release of the Ten Year Enterprise Tax Plan, and tax cuts are on the horizon for many. Couple that with the most recent official cash rate slash from the Reserve Bank of Australia to 1.75 per cent, and you've got a very accessible market situation at present. With these implementations in mind, could your business be ripe for growth? In order to achieve this, you must have sufficient working capital, and Earlypay has you covered there.

Making the most of the Budget

Creating new jobs and lowering tax rates for SMEs is predicted to increase the economy by 1 per cent, potentially encouraging a major push for expansion over the next few years. The Budget also outlined the furthering of support for the National Innovation and Science Agenda, which includes funding for start-ups. That's fantastic news for any budding businesspeople looking to make a strong start in their field.

The next generation of workers is also going to be protected with some of the changes the Budget has outlined, including tax changes that reward both the businesses and the Australians that are employed, helping them to earn more and pay less tax.

The government is taking steps to make sure SMEs in particular, and the workers employed in this sector, are successful in their lines of work. That's encouraging news - is it what you needed to hear before making the decision to expand your market and production?

Getting on board with invoice finance
