What’s in it for Taxpayers? 

These changes are designed to benefit everyone, helping individuals and families hold on to more of their hard-earned money. The changes are targeted to help with the cost of living and boost economic growth. We understand that every dollar counts, and we can see that these changes are a step in the right direction for financial relief. 

Breaking Down the Benefits 

  • Low-Income Earners: Folks in the lowest tax bracket will see immediate perks with a lower tax rate, meaning more take-home pay. 
  • Middle-Income Earners: Those in the middle brackets will enjoy significant relief, slashing their overall tax bill. 
  • High-Income Earners: While the spotlight is on middle and lower-income earners, high-income taxpayers will also gain from the new thresholds and reduced rates. 

These changes kick in for all taxable income earned from 1 July 2024, so they won’t affect your 2023–24 tax return. Please speak to your accountant to better understand how these changes will impact your financial situation and best practises moving forward. 

The Long Game 

By lowering the tax burden, the government hopes to boost spending and investment, fuelling economic growth and making the economy more robust. For businesses, this can mean increased consumer spending and more opportunities for growth.
