There’s been a lot of debate about tax concessions and this followed from the tax discussion paper, released by the Federal Government a month or so ago. There seems to be four areas of focus: 

  • Negative gearing

  • Franking credits

  • Capital gains tax discount

  • Tax concessions regarding superannuation

In this video, AMP Capital’s Head of Investment Strategy and Chief Economist, Shane Oliver suggests that the areas that may see some change over time include the capital gains discount and superannuation, particularly for those with high balances or incomes.

This video must be taken in its entirely and any given chapter viewed in isolation does not represent the entire message.
