California Attacks Santa Claus – A Victorian Agenda?

Tuesday, December 22, 2020

We’ve covered before the weird laws in California (called AB5) that have made self-employment illegal. On the evidence, it seems that these laws have pushed California’s unemployment rate to 50 per cent higher than the US average. The laws came into force on 1 January this year. But it’s now impacting on Christmas.  More...


Oz unions’ weird desire to impose ‘permanent’ wage slavery

Saturday, December 12, 2020

News just out is that private-sector union membership in Australia has plunged to 9 per cent of the workforce. Unions are rapidly becoming public-sector-only, with about 37 per cent of that workforce. Perhaps this is why unions are campaigning so hard to try and force ‘wage slavery’ onto all of us. They are fighting for survival.

The ACTU’s core campaign is against ‘insecure work’. It aims to impose ‘permanent’ employment on Australians. But it’s illogical. In particular their campaign has been mugged in the blink of Covid eye reality.  More...


There’s a small business reform ‘steam train’ happening with the federal government

Tuesday, December 01, 2020

There’s considerable reform occurring at the federal level affecting self-employed, small business people. This is all positive ‘stuff’. More...


A gold-lined ATO stuff-up blows up in the ATO’s face

Tuesday, November 10, 2020

Here’s an ATO story that might interest you.

On Friday last, 6 November, the Australian Taxation Office had a serious legal bomb blow up in its face. It’s so serious that the full bench of the Federal Court has put a ten-day embargo on the publication of the judgment that went against the ATO. We can only guess why. However, the case, the facts and the implications are known. More...


Reforming the ATO – An economic recovery agenda

Thursday, October 29, 2020

At Self-Employed Australia we’ve been campaigning for a heck of a long time for reform of the ATO in the way it handles disputes—particularly with small business people. In the economic recovery from Covid, reform of the ATO must assume high importance.

Fair treatment of taxpayers is essential and this is not occurring if you find yourself in dispute with the ATO. The tax administration laws and the tax system are ‘stacked’ to enable the ATO to abuse its powers. This is bad for society and the economy.  More...


The Andrews government should stop picking on the Islamic community over Covid

Monday, October 26, 2020

In the latest of a series of swipes at the Victorian Islamic community, the Dan Andrews government has blamed a Somali family and their Islamic school for the spread of Covid. The family, backed by the community, has hit back saying it’s the government’s fault.

The government’s attack against the community is occurring because the government is trying to deflect blame away from itself for causing the latest Covid outbreak of last week. This has resulted in the continuing Melbourne lockdown. More...


Victorian Labor – The politically walking dead

Wednesday, October 21, 2020

As a group, the Victorian ALP is politically walking dead. It cannot win the next state election in November 2022.

That is a pretty big claim. Predicting an election outcome two years out is foolish by any measure. But here’s the reasoning.

In Australia’s current political environment each major party can only rely on a locked-on vote of about 35 per cent each. The task at every election is to grab enough of the remaining 30 per cent swinging voters to end up with 50 per cent plus one on election day. More...


Defeat Dan’s war against the self-employed

Monday, October 12, 2020

The Victorian Premier’s Department invited us to respond to the Victorian report on the gig economy. Silly them!

The gig economy report is a con. It’s a Trojan Horse designed to unleash the dogs of (legal) war against self-employed people in Victoria and across Australia. We expressed our massive opposition to this when the report was released in July this year and Premier Andrews stated his keen support to implement the report’s recommendations.  More...

Thursday, October 08, 2020

We’ve tried to pick out the key things from the massive Morrison government Covid-19 business recovery package. These are the things that seem most relevant for self-employed, small business people.

Below is our summary and links to key ATO information. Check with your accountant for application to your personal situation.  More...


Your Vote is your Power – Put Labor last – Victorian Council Elections

Thursday, October 01, 2020

Victorian’s feel powerless. But we say: use your VOTE this council election.

Whether you believe that the lockdown is necessary or not, the Victorian Covid-19 mess is the direct result of the huge failures of the Andrews’ Labor government. They admit this.

Politicians only understand your VOTE.  More...
