GST test for Liberals

The Western Australian Liberal Party is being urged to bite the bullet and formally call on the federal government to consider major changes to the operation of the GST.

The Pearce division wants the party's annual state conference in August to ask Canberra to examine the politically sensitive issue of either increasing the current 10 per cent rate of the GST, or broadening the range of goods and services that attract the tax.

If the GST is not applied to all products and services in Australia we will remain behind the rest of the world. Out effective tax rate is already approaching 60% so it is impossible to attract offshore investors. We get to be more effective and efficient with our tax collection and expenditure or don't touch. It would be interesting to know the whole of cycle of the seperated class for the application of GST collection costs. Flat base application the tax for all services and products will provide efficiency cost savings over and above the cash component.
