Federal Budget Insights

As we now allow ourselves the indulgence of thinking about a post-pandemic world, the goal of the 2021 Federal Budget is to support our economic recovery.  

Following last year’s delayed Budget, a number of support measures, like JobKeeper and the Cashflow Boost, have now concluded.  Other support programs continue, and some have been extended, but will eventually wind down.

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