Have your voice heard - QLD & NSW dates announced for Economics Committee Franking Credits Inquiries

The discussion around the impact of banning franking credit refunds as proposed by the Labor Party continues in earnest into 2019.

We understand that many members of our community are looking for ways to make their voices heard in opposing this proposed policy. Accordingly, we would like to draw your attention to upcoming public hearings that the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Economics is holding for its inquiry into the implications of removing refundable franking credits.

Your presence can send a strong and clear message that the proposed policy is inequitable.  

If you would like to make your voice heard, we encourage you to attend one of the following hearings:
