As news of doom and gloom around Canberra go a nice round 900 job losses from Tax is probably worth a mention:

In Senate Estimates the ATO’s Geoff Leeper said the cuts will be made through natural attrition or voluntary redundancies.

“Unless there are particular functions that cease where it’s impossible for us to redeploy people and those people choose not to take the offer of a voluntary redundancy,” he said.

But, good news, they’re still hiring 237 new graduates. Which is handy as they know everything.

This is probably not good news for anyone hoping for wider availability of EFTPOS facilities in small businesses around Canberra.
