Black Economy Taskforce

Closes 30 Jun 2017

Opened 9 May 2017

Overview

The black economy affects the whole community; it is not just an issue for government. It provides unfair competition for honest businesses. It leads to the exploitation of more vulnerable workers. It increases the costs of providing government services because of people who don't pay their share of tax. This issue needs a long term response from the whole of government, business and the broader community.

A public discussion about the black economy is important to fully examine this issue. The Chair and Taskforce will work closely with business, community and government representatives, including state and territory governments.

To date over 40 consultations have been held with representatives from business and industry, community, academic and government sectors with many more consultations planned, including in regional and capital cities.
