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 FBO be released no later than 3 months after the end of the relevant financial year.

The financial statements in the FBO are similar to those in the Budget but provide actual outcomes rather than estimates.

The 2022–23 Final Budget Outcome for the financial year was released on Friday 22 September 2023.
