The State Government is about to jeopardise skills development and we need your help to stop them.

We need you to tell your story so the Government understands that its changes to the Payroll Tax Exemption will put WA’s future workforce at risk.

The Government plans to remove the Payroll Tax Exemption for all existing employees on traineeships and restrict it to new employees on traineeships earning less than $100,000. This will be retrospective from 1 December 2017.

Businesses have told us that if these changes go ahead they will be forced to reduce their trainee numbers or stop training altogether.

If you have concerns about this change enter your contact details to help SAVE OUR SKILLS.

Tell us how this impacts you
