Abstract

This paper presents the findings of a new survey by the Commission on what motivates Australian firms to operate or relocate their headquarters offshore, and the implications for Australia. The Commission found that the establishment by Australian firms of operations overseas typically complements their domestic activities. The survey confirms that relatively few firms are relocating their headquarters offshore.
