Remember that from 1 July 2014 the Medicare Levy goes to 2% (from 1.5%) so the marginal tax rates all go up.
And remember we are doing this to afford the NDIS… Raising $3.3 billion a year to “afford” a $9-14 billion a year program… Thanks greatest Treasurer in the world…
But you don’t have to wait 3 months.
From 1 April 2014 the FBT rate goes to 47% (up from 46.5%). This also means the FBT gross up rates go to
Type 2 gross-up rate 1.8868.
Type 1 gross-up rate 2.0802.
And remember, going three months early saves a potential loss of $40 million of the Federal Governments $440 billion a year (or .00001). Love the attention to detail…
