The Government response to the Ralph Report: an initial overview


Until 30 June much of the debate regarding tax reform was centred on whether or not the Senate would pass the GST Legislation and in what form. Now that is ancient history. The focus on GST meant that insufficient attention had been given to what might appear in the Ralph Report. This paper is an initial overview of the Government's repsonse to A Tax System Redesigned. It considers the topics of : phased implementation, depreciation, capital gains tax, anti-avoidance, entity taxation, determining taxable income, consolidated tax returns, simplified tax system for small business, international, financial transactions, administration, and fringe benefits
