The prime minister’s announcement was made after the company tax rate was legislated on 31 August 2018 to be reduced from 30% to 27.5% by 2018-19 and from 27.5% to 25% by 2026-27.

If the new proposal passes through Parliament, companies with a turnover of less than $50 million could expect to realise the additional tax cuts up to five years earlier.
