Increasing access to the home battery scheme for rentals

4 February 2020

The South Australian government through the Department for Energy and Mining sought views on making the Home Battery Scheme accessible to renters and landlords.

Draft Land Tax (Miscellaneous) Amendments Bill 2019

1 October 2019

The SACOSS submission supports the proposed changes to land tax aggregation to minimise tax avoidance and make the system fairer, but we do not support the extent of the tax cuts which are also part of the Bill. SACOSS is proposing different tax scales and to use the extra revenue to invest in public and community housing to help reverse the decline in these much needed resources.
