Labor doing its job?

The "growing army of home-based and other small businesses" have been loud enough for Bill Shorten to start discussing what he can do to cut regulation.

According to Shorten's speech in Melbourne, 'More sole traders will see the benefits of incorporating their businesses under Labor's plan ... of incorporation; lowering tax rates and improving liability protection.' He added that 'we want to improve Australia's current complicated and expensive arrangements with .. one that provides a single, simplified structure, tailored for small business.' 

This may be a last minute pitch towards the 2016 election ahead of Turnbull's rise in the polls, or it may be a genuine move to cut the stifling red tape around small businesses in Australia. Let's hope its the latter.
