30 MAR – SMATS Group 17th Annual Australian Budget Review Webinar 2022

Wednesday, March 30, 2022

Fortress Australia finally opened up to international visitors in February 2022 after almost 2 years of travel restrictions in the management of the Covid-19 Pandemic.

So far the Australian Federal Government has managed to keep the economy on track despite the challenges and maintain job growth and general stability despite the challenges in supply and labour markets.

With Australia now amongst the highest in the world for vaccination rates, life has almost returned to “normal” with travel restrictions and softening of Covid-19 protocols and reactionary measures.

2022 brings the next Federal Election and Prime Minister Morrison is falling behind in the polls and staring defeat in the eye. This is not new for him, having defied predictions in 2018 to win an “unwinnable election”.

He has navigated through bushfires, floods and Covid-19 but this Election could well be the biggest challenge he has faced.

His trump card has been his Governments economic management, so this budget is his last chance to pitch to the community in an attempt to win their trust for a further term of office, but is that a pitch they are willing to listen to and accept?

Join our free webinar as we provide you with a clearer understanding of the Budget Announcements including:

• How Covid-19 continues to impact the Australian Government’s federal finances

• All the announcements of the Budget and how they may influence the upcoming election

• Latest taxation changes and how they may impact you and the Australian property market

We warmly welcome you to invite your members to our free webinar

Wednesday 30th March 2022 at 6.30pm (Australian Western Standard Time)
