shutterstock 1231705255

It has been announced that all training paid for by businesses to train their employees will be eligible for the new tax deduction outlined by the Treasurer in his budget speech in March 2022. For every $100 that a business spends on training their employees, it will receive a $120 tax reduction. 

Businesses will be able to claim up to $100,000 per year with this new measure.  

The tax deduction took affect at the start of the Treasurer’s budget speech at 7:30pm AEDT on the 29th of March 2022, but has not yet been officially legislated. Any training expenditure between the Treasurer’s speech and June 30, 2024 will be eligible for the tax deduction once this comes into effect. 

The tax deduction only applies to training conducted by external providers registered in Australia, such as QMS Audits.

  • QMS Audits offers a wide range of training courses in ISO, HACCP and Food Related Standards. 
  • QMS Audits is an Australian Registered Training Provider (RTO number 45344)
According to the Australian Taxation Office, this deduction is currently in draft legislation. It is clarified that depending on a business’s balancing date, special rules will be applied to when this tax deduction can be claimed in tax returns. For more updated information, please visit the Australian Taxation Office website.

Food Safety Culture Training

Food Safety Culture is a key requirement of any food business. It is also a key component of all the GFSI standards, including BRC, SQF, FSSC22000 and Freshcare.

In our Food Safety Culture training, we will walk through the practical meaning of a good food safety culture and how to comply with GFSI standards, Woolworth’s Supplier Excellence and importantly CFMSR. The following elements will be covered in our Food Safety culture training:

  • What is food safety culture
  • 5 GFSI dimensions of food safety culture
  • How to write a food safety culture improvement plan
  • How to measure food safety culture
  • Practical implementation to improve food safety culture at all corporate levels including factory and senior management level.

You will receive a series of templates to assist you in writing up a food safety culture plan. Our templates are tried and tested, for both simplicity and effectiveness.


Food fraud and food defence are major threats to Australia’s food chain. For manufacturers who import ingredients, failure to identify food fraud or potential attacks on your business can have a large impact on your reputation.

SQF, BRC and each of the major supermarkets have significant requirements to ensure the risks of food fraud and food defence have been identified and controlled. We have been working with clients since Version 2 of Coles CFMSR was released to build effective plans that pass CFMSR audits. 

This Food Defence and Food Fraud training (TACCP/VACCP) explains the threats and vulnerabilities to our food chain. We explain how to conduct food defence and food fraud risk assessments and how to write up a food fraud vulnerability assessment & mitigation plan and a food defence plan using our templates.
