Winners and Losers of the 2015 Budget

After the public’s reaction to the budget release last year, it is clear that the Government is relying on favourable economic conditions to return it to surplus.

This year’s big winners include small businesses and national security. While many of the controversial parts of last year’s budget remain, the Government has made further attempts to regain revenue, and is relying on its generous childcare shake-up to calm the electorate.
