We’ve been sending you lots of information on the Albanese government’s small business destruction (Loophole) Bill currently being investigated by a Senate Committee. We have more information still to send you, but if you’re interested, there is a series of Australia-wide information sessions on this being run by the Master Builders Association.
You don’t have to be a tradie to attend, because this Loophole Bill kills YOUR self-employed small business whether you’re a tradie, an IT contractor, a hairdresser or whatever!
You can find more about the sessions (includes regional/country) and make a booking if you can attend through this link to the MBA campaign page.
We had one hairdresser contact us and say, “I just work for myself. Who’ll be my employer if I’m turned into an employee? My customers?” Brilliant question. And here’s the stupidity of this Bill. It literally declares self-employed, independent contractors to be employees. So, yes. Who’s our employer? Great question that the Bill doesn’t answer. Just dumb!!! (That’s a technical term for a stupid law by the way!)
Because this Loophole Bill is so complicated we’ve been sending you information and analysis in ‘bits’. But we’ve now updated our campaign page:
We’ve put all our analysis in one spot and will keep updating this.
Remember—your future and your income as a self-employed person is in the hands of the seven independent Senators.
