Government invites pre-budget submissions

The Assistant Treasurer has opened the annual pre-budget submission process.

Individuals, businesses and community groups have been invited to share their views regarding priorities for the 2022-23 budget.

Last week, the government confirmed the budget would be brought forward to 29 March, as the Prime Minister braces for an April or May election.

The budget date was revealed in a parliamentary program tabled on Monday (29 November).


This will be the first time the budget has been delivered in March with May the preferred month. However, 2022 is an election year and the vote must take place on a Saturday by 21 May.

In the lead-up to the budget, Assistant Treasurer Michael Sukkar announced on Monday (6 December) that the government is now taking pre-budget submissions.

"The 2022‑23 budget will continue to create jobs, guarantee the essential services, and build a more secure and resilient Australia," Mr Sukkar said.

“The government places considerable importance on receiving submissions in developing its budget strategy and policies,” he added. 

The pre-budget submission process for the 2022-23 budget closes on 28 January 2022.
