INFOGRAPHIC: Winners and losers of the 2016-17 Australian Commonwealth Budget

The 2016-17 Australian Commonwealth Budget has landed and as is the case in all years, some have benefited more than others.

" Small-to-medium business owners are big winners, with an extension of existing tax concessions to SMEs with a turnover of less than $A10 million."
Felicity Emmett, Head of Australian Economics, ANZ

Small-to-medium business owners are big winners, with an extension of existing tax concessions to SMEs with a turnover of up to $A10 million. These groups will now pay a company tax rate of 27.5 per cent from 2016-17, progressively dropping to 25 per cent by 2023-24.

On the flipside, a new diverted profits tax and task force will target multinational tax avoidance in a move that, alongside existing anti-avoidance laws, is expected to raise $A3.7 billion.

Smokers are again also in the crosshairs, with an increase in the tobacco excise and customs duties, on top of already existing indexation.
