2022

Federal Budget Insights

At the time of last year’s Budget, allowing ourselves the indulgence of thinking about a post-pandemic world was perhaps a little premature.  But maybe this time we really can. 

The forecast deficit for the 2022-23 year is $78 billion, and the current year’s deficit is expected to come in at $79 billion.  These are significantly lower than forecast in the two previous Budgets.  

Although some direct support measures continue, most have ceased.  However, deficits and debt with be with us for many years, but that is the price of averting what might have been far worse.

We set out a summary of the key measures announced, and what they mean for you.
