The Federal Budget was handed down on 2nd April 2019. Compared to the previous few years, this Budget was not as significant in terms of its overall impact on clients, strategies and the broader industry. There were however some important announcements that may impact you, or may provide you with new opportunities.
It is important to understand that the measures announced in the Budget are proposals only and will not become law until legislation is passed.
Given an election announcement is imminent, it is unlikely that any of these measures will be passed before the election.
We will summarise some of these key measures as they were announced.
