All Australians To Pay The Same Import Fees

This petition had 135 supporters

All businesses in Australia are affected by the current unfair and uncompetitive $1000 Import Threshold legislation.
It has to be scrapped. We Australian Business Owners and all the Australians we employ URGE everyone to sign this petition and to leave a comment on just how much this inequity is affecting your opportunity to remain in business, and to be able to create jobs for all Australians and for our Future Generations.
Governments Federal and State, Labor and Coalition have been reviewing the Low Value Threshold since 2010 Recently there was another enquiry to review this legislation again. This was uncalled for, Retailers livelihoods in many cases are hanging in the balance, and many employees in the retail industry have lost their job because it is often less expensive to purchase overseas rather than from Australian retailers.
We know that the system that is proposed by the Government is not perfect, however the GST system in Australia is not 100% perfect either. Overseas retailers have had time to get ready since 2010, now is the time to act and tell both the Labor and Coalition Governments to act now. Please add your name to this petition and ensure that you send this on to everyone involved in the retail industry, we need to ensure the success of our industry into the future.
Together we can make the change we so desperately need. Australian Businesses and Jobs for Australians Must Come First. Our Politicians are responsible for making this happen, not delaying it any longer.
