IPA 2015 Pre-Budget Submission

The Institute of Public Accountants (IPA) welcomes the opportunity to present our pre-Budget submission for the 2015-16 financial year, and looks forward to working with the Government as it sets its economic agenda.

This submission is based on the Australian Small Business White Paper, which has been produced by the IPA Deakin University SME Research Centre. Contributions to the White Paper have been made by major stakeholders from the public and private sectors and academia, including The Treasury, Productivity Commission, ACCC, ACCI, REIA, NAB, Westpac, Xero, MYOB and others.

The IPA took the White Paper on a regional roadshow across Australia and we have received extensive contributions from small business people across a wide range of sectors. The White Paper was then extensively reviewed by Professor Marc Cowling of the UK, who has been rated as one of the top economists in the world and by other senior academics in both Australia and the UK.
