Backpacker Tax – Delay Announced

The Federal Government has announced it will delay the start of the so-called backpacker tax by six months. The delay has been welcomed by the tourism sector and farmers, who rely on backpackers as a relatively cheap source of labour, especially in the crucial harvest season.

But at this stage it would still be introduced in January 2017.
