Carbon tax workshop for Sunshine Coast commercial property

October 24, 2011

Commercial property and business owners on the Sunshine Coast may benefit from attending a new workshop focusing on the implications of the recently-passed carbon tax legislation.

An event planned by the Sunshine Coast Council in partner with independent carbon accounting firm BDO Australia will outline the steps businesses need to take to ensure they are carbon tax-ready.

BDO partner Dylan Byrne will lead a series of Sunshine Coast workshops in November, visiting Caloundra on November 3, Maroochydore on November 10 and Noosa Junction on November 17.

With an estimated 34,500 businesses operating in the Sunshine Coast, the local authority is keen to help business owners get answers to common questions about the carbon tax.

Lew Brennan, economic development portfolio councillor, remarked: "Sunshine Coast Council has been carbon tax-ready for some time now - but we want to do what we can to help local businesses to be in a similar position.

He added: "These workshops will not argue the merits or otherwise of a carbon tax; what is more important right now, is that we do what we can to assist local businesses understand what it means and explore where there may be opportunities to improve their business opportunities."

Byrne's presentation will focus not only on the government's Clean Energy Future plan, but also will feature an introduction to SME-related carbon tax issues - including additional business risks, as well as opportunities, costs and benefits.
