For too long, small business has been Unpaid Tax Collectors.
Since July 2000, small business has collected, calculated and remitted Goods & Services Tax (GST) to the Australian Tax Office without payment or due recognition.
The average cost to small business is estimated to be a minimum of $1,000 per year, excluding accountants’ fees.
The government says this cost is covered by business having ‘use’ of the GST until payment date –rubbish!
It doesn’t add up and it’s not good enough!
We, the undersigned, call on the Federal Government of Australia to acknowledge and reimburse small business for the expense incurred in collecting, calculating and remitting GST.
The Pay the Unpaid Tax Collectors petition to Australian House of Representatives was written by Bosco Accounting and is in the category Justice at GoPetition.
