On 9 May 2023, the Labor Government handed down the 2023/24 Federal Budget. This was largely a no surprises Budget, with most announcements having been released in the weeks leading up to Budget night.
With the economic outlook still looking tough, with low levels of Gross Domestic Product into the next 12 months and inflation still high, albeit slowly coming under control, the Government has had to be careful to address current concerns whilst not creating problems for future years.
Below you will find summaries and analysis of some of the major proposals and how they may affect your clients.
Watch on demand the Federal budget debriefing by Bryan Ashenden, BT Head of Financial Literacy. Bryan delivers insights from the announcements as well as what it means for clients, financial advisers and advice professionals.
