Motorists and self-funded retirees biggest winners in new changes for NSW

Motorists and self-funded retirees will benefit from significant cost savings rolling out in NSW from the beginning of the financial year.

Under the changes, self-funded retirees who hold a Commonwealth Seniors Health Card will be able to claim $200 a year rebate on their energy bill.

Also, motorists who spend $15 or more a week on tolls will be eligible for half-price vehicle registration, while those who pay more than $25 will continue to receive free registration.

Other changes include; an extra $100 per child participating in sport, payroll tax relief for small businesses and changes to stamp duty.

NSW Treasurer Dominic Perrottet tells Ben Fordham it’s important people know about these changes.

“We want to get the information out there, because here in NSW we’ve cut about $2 billion in cost of living initiatives over the last two years, but we found that many people aren’t aware that some of these exist.”
