ADIA CEO Update - 2022-2023 Federal Budget

2022-2023 Federal Budget

Federal Treasurer Josh Frydenberg delivered the Government’s annual budget on Tuesday night. The Treasurer declared the Coalition’s budget supported a “dramatic and material improvement to the bottom line”.

In the lead-up to the federal election, the spending package focused mainly on individuals and “cost of living relief in a targeted and temporary way”. The relief measures included one-off payments and an immediate 50 per cent cut to the fuel excise, which should trickle down to the user in the next fortnight, lasting until September.

You can read the Government release on the 2022-2023 Budget in full.

With a forecast deficit of $78 billion in 22-23, the package also included some incentives for business, relevant to ADIA members.

 

 

Technology Investment Boost

Small businesses with annual turnover of less than $50 million will have access to a new bonus 20  per cent deduction for the cost of expenses and depreciating assets that support digital uptake, up to $100,000 of expenditure per year. The boost is available immediately until 30 June 2023.


Skills Training

Small businesses with annual turnover of less than $50 million will have access to a new bonus 20 per cent deduction for the cost of external training courses delivered to their employees by providers registered in Australia. The initiative is available immediately until 30 June 2024.


The Instant Asset Write-off rule is still in play

The Government highlighted savings from previous deregulation including a reduction to the company tax rate and increased access to small business tax concessions. Though no new reform was announced Tuesday.

The increased Instant Asset Write-off is also still available. Originally released in March 2020 until June of the same year, the purchase threshold increased from $30,000 to $150,000 (per asset) and expanded access to include businesses with aggregated annual turnover or income of less than $5B. The instant asset write-off is available until June 2023.

COVID-19 Winter Response Plan

The Treasurer briefly outlined the COVID-19 Winter Response Plan, including a $6 billion spend to ensure the transition to an open economy is insulated from increased cases of COVID-19 and Influenza during the colder months. The spend includes priority access to treatment for vulnerable populations, maximising access to vaccinations and testing, health system resilience, public communication, and a sizeable PPE investment for the National Medical Stockpile.
 

The Healthcare Package

Immediately following the budget announcement in Parliament, the Department of Health released further information outlining the healthcare package. You can find this here. 

Included in this information, Minister for Health and Aged Care, the Hon Greg Hunt confirmed the ongoing funding of dental services to eligible Australians in Tuesday’ s budget, ‘Dental and oral health is a key part of primary care and the Government is supporting the continuation of the Federation Funding Agreement (FFA) on Public Dental Services for Adults with $107.8 million, for an additional 12 months, to 30 June 2023,’ Minister Hunt’s release stated.

As well as the COVID-19 strategy, the main healthcare focus on Tuesday night was the continued measures taken following the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety, along with a substantial package for mental health support services.

Healthcare and hospitals were also a key part of the Regional Accelerator Program, outlining heavy investment in several regional areas across Australia.

Further line items that will no doubt be of interest to members include more affordable childcare, changes to paid parental leave and the Regional Accelerator Program, which includes funding for modern manufacturing and the Supply Chain Resilience Initiative.

2022 Australian Dental Industry Award Winners Announced at ADX Sydney

Australia’s top performers in the dental industry have been recognised at a gala event at the Sofitel Magnifique Ballroom, Darling Harbour Sydney on Friday 18 Mar 2022.

An initiative of the Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA), the peak business organisation representing dental product manufacturers and suppliers, the awards were presented during ADX Sydney, Australia’s premier dental event.

“Australia’s dental industry has a strong reputation for best practice. These awards have become synonymous with excellence. They recognise those in our community who support oral health professionals in improving the health of all Australians,” said ADIA CEO, Kym De Britt.

This year TrioClear took out the Sustainability Award. James Squirrel, CEO of Modern Dental Pacific Group encompassing TrioClear was at the ceremony to help celebrate with his team. “We’re really fortunate to have an incredibly passionate and creative team. The product behind this award was five years in development and has been a long-term priority for us. This award is fantastic recognition for all our team’s really hard work,” Mr Squirrel said.

The awards process, convened by the ADIA and judged by industry experts is designed as a reflective process for businesses and their teams, “The calibre of entries, which is always outstanding, seems to improve year on year. It’s really encouraging to see ADIA members getting value out the submission process itself, which is a really helpful tool to set goals going forward and celebrate your team,” Mr De Britt said.

Tabitha Acret of EMS took home the night’s Outstanding Achiever Award. She saw the awards night as a great way to touch base with others in the industry for inspiration. “It’s wonderful to see businesses awarded in areas like sustainability and community. It’s fantastic to see what other people are doing and exciting to see what you need to do to match that level,” Ms Acret said.

Entries will open for the 2023 Australian Dental Industry Awards later this year.

The ADIA President and Board also took the opportunity to present service awards on the evening, including celebrating four businesses for the enormous milestone of 50 years of membership with ADIA.

ADIA CEO Update - ADX Sydney 2022

Posted by ADIA on 24 January 2022
ADIA CEO Update - ADX Sydney 2022

 

ADX Sydney 2022

 

The Australian Dental Industry Association wishes to advise members and exhibitors that the upcoming ADX Sydney 2022 at the International Convention Centre (ICC) at this point in time is still planning to proceed on 17-19 March 2022.

 

At this stage, the NSW Government does not envisage implementing restrictions to prevent large events from proceeding. The current medical advice from NSW Health indicates that we've reached peak infection rates and should see case numbers dropping over the next few weeks.

 

The ADIA will implement the same robust COVID-safe strategy we had at ADX Sydney 2020 and ADX Melbourne 2021, including the use of face masks, sanitisation stations, and controlled entry and exit points.

 

There are currently 180 exhibitors confirmed, with a waitlist of 56 organisations wanting to exhibit at ADX and only 24 booths remaining for sale.

 

Delegate confidence in the community remains high. At the end of this week in 2018, we had 1406 registrations. In 2020 we had 1605 registrations. And as of today, we have 2720, almost double the registrations for the same time in 2018.

Over the next three weeks, we will monitor the situation closely and continue to update members and exhibitors on a weekly basis to advise of any changes leading up to the event.
