Executivepulse : Attitudes towards rise in GST

A new survey shows business decision makers are more likely than most New Zealanders to believe personal tax cuts in the Budget will fully compensate them for the rise in GST.
However, more (43%) still believe they will not be fully compensated than compensated (39%).
Do you think you will be adequately compensated, through reductions in personal tax and other changes, for the increase in GST to 15%?
