The Budget reaffirmed the delivery of tax cuts to lower and middle income earners and promised significant spending on infrastructure, all with an expected Budget surplus in FY2020 of $7.1bn.

Businesses with turnovers up to $50m will get assistance from the increase in the immediate tax write off for assets acquired after Budget night to 30 June 2020 with a value up to $30,000.
