KSR’s Budget 2013-2014 Outline – May 2013

Welcome to the inaugural edition of KSR’s Budget 2013-2014 Outline – May 2013

In a move which was not unexpected, the Federal Government confirmed its turnaround from a forecast $1.5 billion surplus predicted in last year’s budget for the 2012-2013 year to a $19 billion deficit. This is followed by a further $18 billion deficit in the 2013-2014 year, and a return to surplus not expected until the 2016-2017 financial year. Whilst not unexpected, the quantum of the deficit and the time to restore a surplus still comes as a bit of a surprise. The Government is blaming a general downturn in the global economy and writedowns in expected tax receipts in the vicinity of $60 billion.
