Hard-working Federal MP, Michelle Landry, is calling on small business people to gather for a free forum focused squarely on them and their needs.
Ms Landry, whose strong representation has led to billions in infrastructure spending for the region, says the forum, featuring Federal Minister for Small & Family Business, Training & Skills, Sen Michaelia Cash, offers a prime opportunity for Central Queensland businesses to discuss what matters to them and their businesses.
“Small business is the engine room of our economy in CQ and we as a Federal Coalition Government have been determined to see our small and medium enterprises benefit from our policies.
“Policies like changing the corporate tax rate – from 30 to 25 percent – for businesses with turnovers below $50 million, make our SMEs far more competitive on the global stage, while by continuing the $20,000 instant asset write-off we are helping businesses justify spending that bit extra to buy a piece of equipment and help grow their business, and those around them each year.
“These have been great for a whole bunch of local businesses however there is always more can be done.
“That’s why I have been so keen to bring Senator Cash to Rockhampton to discuss with local business people what it is the government can be doing to better support them and to help them continue to employ more Central Queenslanders.” Ms Landry said.
“We’ve seen over one million jobs created across the country under this coalition government and it’s small businesses that have done the bulk of the heavy lifting, we need to keep this going and our small business people know best how to do this.”
Ms Landry said the free event was receiving good interest and as numbers are limited, encourages interested people to book their place at: www.trybooking.com/YQMT
