Carbon No Excuse for Price Gouge

July 13, 2011 • News

Businesses thinking of profiteering from the carbon tax which will come into effect 1 July 2012 should be mindful of the consequences: A price watch scheme overseen by Australian Competition and Consumer Commission will see these companies face fines of up to $1.1 million.

Individuals are not escaping from the scheme too, with the prospect of facing the maximum penalty of $220,000.

The carbon tax announced recently will see cost of living rise by 0.7 per cent on average.
