State and Federal Budgets

State and Federal Budgets

In the lead up to each State and Federal budget, the Victorian Chamber advocates for pro-business policies and programs to benefit our members.

The recommendations we make lower business costs and underpin economic activity, investment and job creation. Our commentary on State and Federal budgets provides members with timely analysis and advice that will impact their organisations.

2020-2021 State Budget

The Victorian Chamber welcomed the 2020-21 State Budget handed down on 24 November 2020, delivering initiatives which support a jobs-led economic recovery and putting Victorian business and workers first.

The Government responded to business’ needs and direct feedback from the Chamber on behalf of its members. The budget reflects the Chamber’s pre-budget submission and continued advocacy on behalf of members.
