Ending tax avoidance

Taxation is the price of doing business in a prosperous society like Australia. All businesses need to pay their fair share. Australians are sick of multi-nationals treating taxation as an optional extra. Every dollar they don’t pay means poorer services and infrastructure for us all.

The Greens have a strong record of exposing and clamping down on tax avoidance. The Australian public is outraged with the depth and breadth of tax avoidance practices exposed by the senate inquiry into multi-national tax avoidance. The scale of this tax avoidance requires an equally sized response.

The Greens are committed to stamping out tax avoidance in all its forms. However, the Turnbull government wants to give those same companies and wealthy individuals tax cuts and Labor has only offered a limited and narrow set of policy measures to date.

The Greens' Ending Tax Avoidance package is a comprehensive approach aimed at four key areas to combat the scourge of tax avoidance across enforcement, tax law changes, enhanced public disclosure and global diplomacy.
