Grasping the COVID opportunity for tax reform

September 1, 2020

Calls for reform to Australia’s tax system have been consistently growing over recent decades, including in the Committee’s recent Innovation Economy report. These calls have found little desire from leaders to wear the political pain to deliver long-term productivity, social and economic benefit.

The COVID recession has re-ignited the reform debate – with the crisis offering a window of public support for major reform. To discuss how this window should be used to achieve the best outcome, we were joined by three experts:

  • Dr Ken Henry, author of the Henry Tax Review and former Treasury Secretary
  • Dr John Hewson, Professor in the Crawford School of Public Policy at ANU and former Opposition Leader
  • Alf Capito, Tax Services & Tax Policy Leader Asia Pacific at EY
