Treasury Laws Amendment (2017 Measure No.4) Bill 2017

Treasury Laws Amendment (2017 Measure No.4) Bill 2017 is officially law.  

It is a bright new era for the Australian wine industry following the introduction of legislative amendments that will effectively remove market distortions and directly support the wine industry and its communities.

The introduction into Parliament this week of the Treasury Laws Amendment (2017 Measure No.4) Bill 2017 is the result of several years of hard work by Australian winemakers advocating for improvements to the integrity of the Wine Equalisation Taxation (WET) system, which will enable the industry to forge ahead as the economic and social powerhouse of rural and regional Australia.
