The Federal Budget 2017 was announced on Tuesday 9th May, with Treasurer Scott Morrison estimating the real growth in the Australian economy will rebound to 3% over the next two years and that the budget will reach a surplus of $7.4bn by 2020-21. Wage growth is also expected to increase from 2% to above 3% over the next four years.

The Budget 2017 addressed a multitude of issues including, but not limited to: infrastructure, banking levy, foreign investment, housing affordability, company tax cuts and small business incentives, changes to the medicare levy, and others.
