Parliament is back
Since the Budget announcement, Federal Parliament has been sitting again and we continue to engage with politicians to thank them for the rebate increase, and to advocate on issues that affect the industry.
I have started discussions for the next Parliamentary Friends of Australian Spirits event, which is planned to be held in conjunction with an industry workshop – more information to come on this soon.
Many thanks to those distilleries who have written to their local MP to thank them for supporting the call for fair and sustainable tax reform. If you have not yet done so, please write to your Federal MP and:
- thank them for the increase to the rebate
- tell them what you expect or hope to do with the money you will now have available to invest in your business
- invite them to your distillery for a photo.
Please let me know if your Federal MP agrees to come for a photo opportunity.
