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 three 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 Final Budget Outcome for the 2021–22 was released on Wednesday 28 September 2022.

The Final Budget Outcome for the 2022–23 financial year will be released in 2023.
