The Black Economy Taskforce is looking at ways to make business fairer for everyone.
The Black Economy Taskforce is an independent inquiry involving a partnership between 19 Commonwealth agencies and a private sector reference group.
It was formed to target the black economy (also known as the cash economy or shadow economy), which refers to businesses and individuals who operate outside the tax and regulatory system.
This behaviour is unfair to those who are doing the right thing, and clamping down on the black economy helps to ensure a level playing field for all.
The Taskforce recently released its interim report outlining its initial findings and recommendations, and is currently holding a series of public town hall discussions and industry roundtables around Australia to talk about the black economy.
You can make a submission on the interim report by 31 July.
A final report will be delivered to the Government in October 2017.
