The Australian Government's plan for a clean energy future signifies the start of a significant period of structural change for Australian business and the economy over the coming decades. The Carbon Tax policy which is to be introduced to parliament in September is one of the most significant changes for Australia since the introduction of GST. Its impact is expected to be felt across all spectrums of business and consumer life.
This Inside Business event will highlight the key sectors that will be impacted by the Carbon Tax and also touch on the not so obvious areas that are likely to be impacted. During our presentation we will walk you through the key fundamentals behind the Carbon Tax:
• The costs involved;
• The support - how much and to whom;
• The implementation process and transition to an emissions trading scheme; and
• The debate: the positives, the negatives, the global picture and the alternatives.
We will help you understand the likely impacts on profitability, which costs can be passed through the supply chain as well as the operational requirements of the policy, which will be crucial for those with business, investment and personal interests in Australia.
