NFF stands ground on 15% backpacker tax

The National Farmers’ Federation stands by its support for a 15% backpacker tax, the Chief Executive Officer Tony Mahar said.
We believe that this rate is fair, internationally competitive and recognises the unique nature of seasonal work.
We don’t believe that backpackers should pay less tax than those on the Seasonal Worker Program.
Our members will not be bullied on this issue and today’s antics in the Senate show contempt for farmers and growers in desperate need of a resolution.
Enough is enough. We need this issue put to bed, once and for all.
