Payroll hike to cost 1,300 jobs: CCI

About 1,300 jobs will be lost because of the state government’s proposed increases to payroll tax, according to the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of WA.

The move, announced last week in Treasurer Ben Wyatt’s first budget, will increase the rate of payroll tax for businesses with payrolls larger than $100 million from 5.5 per cent to 6 per cent.

Businesses with national payrolls above $1.5 billion will face an even greater rise, to 6.5 per cent.
