Final Budget Outcome

The Final Budget Outcome (FBO) encompasses Australian Government general government sector fiscal outcomes for the financial year and is based on external reporting standards. The Charter of Budget Honesty Act 1998 requires that a Final Budget Outcome be released no later than three months after the end of the relevant financial year. The financial statements in the Final Budget Outcome are similar to those in the budget but provide actual outcomes rather than estimates.

The Final Budget Outcome for the 2017-18 financial year was released on 25 September 2018 and is available from the 2017-18 Budget website.

The Final Budget Outcome for the 2018-19 financial year will be released in 2019.
