  • Last chance to speak up on Carbon Tax impact

    This is the final week local print businesses can have their say on the impact of the Carbon Tax, with a survey launched by the Printing Industries Association of Australia (Printing Industries) seeking to quantify the impact of the new tax on printing industry business set to close on 5 April.

    Results from the survey will be used as part of Printing Industries industry advocacy efforts with politicians and senior policy makers in government.

    Printing Industries National Manager, Policy and Government Affairs, Hagop Tchamkertenian (pictured), said the survey results were an important part of an on-going campaign to find ways of minimising the impact of the tax on businesses.

    ”The greater the participation and comments we can get on this issue, the more effective our lobbying can be on behalf of the industry,” he said. “With the Price on Carbon or Carbon Tax as it is better known, now operating for some eight months, sufficient time has past to make an assessment of the impact of this interim tax on businesses operating in the printing and associated industries until the planned introduction of an Emissions Trading Scheme in 2015.”

    The short survey asks seeks information on the financial impact on companies covering employment, productivity, sales and profitability. It also asks whether companies absorbed the tax or passed it onto to clients in part or fully.

    The survey can be accessed via this link and closes on Friday 5 April 2013.
