2015-16 pre-Budget submissions

I am inviting submissions from individuals, businesses and community groups on their views regarding priorities for the 2015-16 Budget.

The 2015-16 Budget will continue the Government’s commitment to repair the budget, to ensure the Commonwealth lives within its means, pays down its debt and maintains a credible path to surplus.

The Government is also committed to productivity-enhancing investment and reform to build a stronger and more prosperous economy.

The Government places considerable importance on receiving community views in developing its budget strategy and policies.

In order to allow views to feed into the budget process at an early stage, I ask that interested parties lodge submissions as soon as possible, and no later than Friday 6 February 2015.

Lengthier submissions should ideally include an executive summary of no more than two pages, and be accompanied by an electronic version.

Submissions should be forwarded to the address below:

Budget Policy Division
Department of the Treasury
Langton Crescent
