Key insights

  • Our progressive tax arrangements are like the ‘Battle of Britain’ – Never was so much owed by so many to so few.
  • Taxpayers are using negative gearing on property as the primary method to reduce their tax exposure as the current tax arrangements provides a high incentive to do so – if it was less extreme then possibly the tax up of property as an investment vehicle might be more moderate.
  • The youth are really the ones losing out in terms of government allowances.
