Federal Budget Analysis 2013

In our Budget analysis, we summarise the key features announced last night. As in every other year, the Budget will have a positive or a negative impact on different individuals or households in Australia.

Budget at a glance:

1. Rise in budget deficit as tax revenue drops sharply

2. Big ticket commitments for disability, education and infrastructure

3. Superannuation and retirement changes

4. Clamp down on multi-national tax minimisation schemes

The government is planning deferrals and cuts in spending, plus tax changes aimed at multi-national corporations, to target a return to budget surplus by 2016–17.
