The talk has been on big corporations, foreign investment and the miners, but a question looms over the outcomes for ground level SME, the engine room of our economy.

With eligible businesses enjoying a reduction in company tax and a $5000 depreciation allowance, the immediate impacts of the Henry tax review seems generally positive for Gold Coast SME’s.

Previously announced reductions to personal income tax thresholds continue to apply while from July 2011, tax payers will receive a 50 per cent reduction on the first $1000 of ‘interest’ income earned.
