Budget 2022: Everything you need to know

The 2022 Budget offers business encouragement to take on new apprentices and to upskill existing workers, and more.

HVIA CEO Todd Hacking said the budget contains a lot for HVIA members to work with.

“Tonight’s announcements have some welcome investment opportunities for small business and some announcements that reflect the evolving needs of the workforce, including a more flexible approach to maternity leave,” he said.

“The relief at the bowser, through a temporary reduction in fuel excise, will not only make a big difference to fleet operators, the impact will make a difference all the way down the supply chain.

“Roads and infrastructure investment remain an absolute priority if we are to improve safety and productivity.

“The Government has recognised that by investing in our national network, supported by a program to build bridges that will enable the safest most productive vehicles into regional areas.”

Assistant Minister for Road Safety and Freight Transport, Scott Buchholz MP, also confirmed that the instant asset write-off will continue.

“In keeping with our strong support for the sector, we also confirm tonight the temporary full expensing measure to 30 June 2023, which strengthens business investment and creates more jobs,” Mr Buchholz said.
