The Harper Report

At a glance

The Federal Government has released its much anticipated response to the Harper Review. As expected, the Government will accept the majority of the recommendations, although many of these will require either the agreement of states and territories, or for those jurisdictions to take their own action to implement reforms.

We have analysed the implications for corporate Australia and summarised the Government's position on key proposals.

Major issues: Briefing Materials

The Harper Panel's recommendations are set to drive major regulatory reform which, if implemented, will impact Australian businesses across a wide range of sectors.
