Senator Small understands small business, so he understands in particular that investing in a skilled workforce ensures small businesses are able to prosper, grow and create more jobs for Australians. Senator Small also understands how important it is for the government to invest in small businesses so that they can embrace the digital revolution. You saw again last night the coalition government further investing in the capacity and the growth of small business. From budget night, every $100 these small businesses spend on digital technologies like cloud computing—we know how important that is—e-invoicing, cybersecurity and web design will now see them get a $120 tax deduction. That is getting them where we need them to be: in the digital age. We are also focused on cutting as much red tape as we can for small business, because when you cut red tape, small businesses prosper, they grow and they create more jobs for Australians.
