Australian Federal Budget 2021


Last night, The Hon Josh Frydenberg MP, Treasurer, handed down the 2021-22 Australian Federal Budget. Providing for a safer environment and incentives to increase spending by taxpayers to stimulate the economy remained a consistent measure and is in line with the October 2020 Federal Budget.

Announcements in the budget included the extension of the low and middle income tax offset (worth up to $1,080) for another 12 months, a number of superannuation announcements that could have a significant (and positive) impact on the wealth plans of many Australians as well as a focus on health issues for Australians.

Bryan Ashenden, BT’s Head of Financial Literacy, and his team have analysed the Federal Budget 2021-22 and broken it down into meaningful insights and tools to help you distil the information most relevant for your clients.
