The Minister for Revenue and Financial Services Kelly O’Dwyer today called for stakeholder submissions to the Black Economy Taskforce.

The taskforce, led by the former chair of the B20 Anti-Corruption Taskforce, Michael Andrew, will consider measures that have been employed overseas and will seek to identify policy responses which take advantage of emerging technology. The taskforce will also consider ways to change community attitudes about the black economy and will look at both positive incentives as well as sanctions.

The taskforce has been asked to prepare an interim report by March 2017 and a final report by October 2017. All those who have an interest in this issue can provide initial views to the taskforce secretariat by 17 February 2016 through [email protected].
