Can you help us thank your local representative Andrew Leigh MP?
Recently Andrew Leigh MP spoke of the importance of tackling tax avoidance and we’d like to say thanks.
In Parliament Andrew Leigh said:
The tax office report revealed that one in four companies earning over $100 million paid no tax in Australia in 2014—not one dollar.
We believe it may be in the interests of our developing-country neighbours and the tax debate globally for the Australian Taxation Office to publish aggregated, de-identified information about how many accounts and what value holdings foreign nationals have in Australia.

Whenever a politician engages with the issues we all care passionately about, it’s important to encourage, thank, or even challenge them. It doesn't mean we support that politician, or endorse everything they say. But if they don’t hear from passionate people in their electorate when they do speak up, it’s easy for them to give up, get cynical, or assume their electorate doesn’t care about Australian aid.
