BIG change must happen to ATO says government report

Wednesday, March 03, 2021

The Federal government’s small business agency, the Small Business Ombudsman, has called for major changes to the way the Australian Taxation Office operates. The Ombudsman, Kate Carnell, says “… the time is right for Government to deliver a [tax administration] system that suits the small business sector…”

We totally agree. The ATO’s approach to small business is bullying, unfair and oppressive. We’ve been highlighting this since around 2012 and have been calling for major change. See our 20-minute videoMore...


Australian unions see flying ‘gig’ pigs landing from the UK

Wednesday, February 24, 2021

You may have seen reports that the UK’s top court has decided that Uber drivers are not independent contractors. The UK decision seems to support the unions’ campaign against the gig economy. It gives the appearance of international support for Federal Labor’s anti-gig (anti-small business) policy announced earlier this month.  More...


Would you consider the Victorian Premier the most dangerous person in Australia?

Tuesday, February 16, 2021

The most recent Covid lockdown of Victorians resulting from hotel quarantine failures must lead many to believe that the incumbent Victorian government is a danger to the health and safety of Victorians, and Australians.

The first lockdown—lasting 112 days in 2020 and costing 801 lives—resulted directly from disastrously incompetent mismanagement of hotel quarantine by the government. The Victorian government has admitted this.  More...


Victorian Covid lockdown (again). The evidence. Victorian Government failures. Prosecution

Sunday, February 14, 2021

With Victoria back into another hard lockdown, we are following through on our campaign to have the Victorian government prosecuted for breaches of health and safety laws.

Today we release our YouTube assessment of “Was Covid-19 unprecedented?” The Victorian government uses this excuse to say that it was/is not responsible for over 800 deaths. More...


ATO abusing its powers – manipulating the law to abuse people

Thursday, February 04, 2021

Our campaign to reform the ATO continues. Good grief it’s an exhausting process! But the ATO keeps demonstrating why the reform is needed because the ATO keeps behaving badly.

Today we’re highlighting another case of ATO bad behaviour.

Many small businesses are structured as trusts. Most are family trusts. The ‘beneficiaries’ of such trusts are typically family members. A trust can distribute profits to the beneficiaries who then pay the tax.  More...


Covid and the oppression of government regulation and regulators

Monday, January 18, 2021

As we look to 2021 to be a better year than 2020, perhaps one of the shocks of Covid-19 has been how quickly our freedoms and liberty have been crushed under the weight of health dictates. It’s been done for our own good—that is, to keep us all safe from a silent, unseen enemy killer.

With luck, we will emerge from the Covid crisis this year with freedoms being returned. One fear, however, is that once governments, whether of left or right persuasion, taste the seductive power of authoritarianism, they become addictively hooked. There’s nothing some bureaucrats love more than the scent of their own power first thing in the morning. More...


California Attacks Santa Claus – A Victorian Agenda?

Tuesday, December 22, 2020

We’ve covered before the weird laws in California (called AB5) that have made self-employment illegal. On the evidence, it seems that these laws have pushed California’s unemployment rate to 50 per cent higher than the US average. The laws came into force on 1 January this year. But it’s now impacting on Christmas.  More...


Oz unions’ weird desire to impose ‘permanent’ wage slavery

Saturday, December 12, 2020

News just out is that private-sector union membership in Australia has plunged to 9 per cent of the workforce. Unions are rapidly becoming public-sector-only, with about 37 per cent of that workforce. Perhaps this is why unions are campaigning so hard to try and force ‘wage slavery’ onto all of us. They are fighting for survival.

The ACTU’s core campaign is against ‘insecure work’. It aims to impose ‘permanent’ employment on Australians. But it’s illogical. In particular their campaign has been mugged in the blink of Covid eye reality.  More...


There’s a small business reform ‘steam train’ happening with the federal government

Tuesday, December 01, 2020

There’s considerable reform occurring at the federal level affecting self-employed, small business people. This is all positive ‘stuff’. More...


The Andrews government should stop picking on the Islamic community over Covid

Monday, October 26, 2020

In the latest of a series of swipes at the Victorian Islamic community, the Dan Andrews government has blamed a Somali family and their Islamic school for the spread of Covid. The family, backed by the community, has hit back saying it’s the government’s fault.

The government’s attack against the community is occurring because the government is trying to deflect blame away from itself for causing the latest Covid outbreak of last week. This has resulted in the continuing Melbourne lockdown. More...
