Minerals Resource Rent Tax
The Federal Labor Government has secured support for the Minerals Resource Rent Tax (MRRT). This is a historic reform to lock in the benefits of the mining boom and deliver a fair return from the development of the nation’s resource wealth.
The MRRT is a true Labor reform – it is about ensuring all Australians share in the benefits of the mining boom.
The passage of the legislation through the House of Representatives shows the mettle of the Prime Minister, who overcame powerful vested interests and the relentless negativity of Tony Abbott, to get a better deal for Australians for the resources they own 100 per cent.
The MRRT will spread the opportunities of the mining boom to all corners of the country, by:
Delivering a major new tax break for Australia’s 2.7 million small businesses as well as a cut to the company tax rate for all businesses, with small businesses getting a one year head-start.
Boosting the superannuation for 8.4 million workers will increase the nation’s savings pool by $500 billion by 2035. This will provide a 30-year-old worker on average earnings with an extra $108,000 in retirement savings.
The MRRT is providing a much needed extra superannuation contribution for 3.6 million low-income-earners worth a total of $900 million each year; and
Investing in roads, bridges and other infrastructure, particularly in our great mining regions.

Agenda In Focus
Labor’s MRRT means tax cuts, more super, better roads
Labor’s strong economic management has created jobs and new investment in Australia’s mining industries.
Capital expenditure on mining and energy is at record highs, with an investment pipeline of over $430 billion
Over $85 billion in private sector funds has been committed to new projects in the last twelve months, including Queensland’s Galilee Basin, and expansions of iron ore production in the Pilbara.
The mining boom means jobs. But the profits from the boom must also mean better services and lasting gains for all.
That’s why Labor will bring in a Minerals Resources Rent Tax – making sure all Australians benefit from the profits of the mining boom.
The MRRT will fund:
Tax cuts: Australia’s 2.7m small businesses will be able to access the $6,500 instant asset write-off from 1 July 2012 – putting a billion dollars back into businesses nationwide.
More super: Boosting the super guarantee from 9% to 12% for around 8.4m workers – increasing retirement savings by $500bn by 2035. And giving 3.6m low-income earners concessions worth $800m a year on employer super contributions.
Better roads and bridges: Billions of dollars in new roads, bridges and other infrastructure nationwide.
Labor’s sound economic management has supported the mining boom.
And our MRRT will share the benefits of that boom with all Australians.
Labor is delivering for Australian businesses and workers. We’re keeping taxes and inflation low. And we’re repairing the damage of eleven years of Liberal failure and neglect.
Only Labor cares about Australian small business, working families and retirees.
And only Labor has the policies and plans to deliver real results for all Australians.
