The economic, financial, physical, mental and emotional issues that have arisen due to the COVID-19 pandemic—which immediately followed the devastating bushfires and drought—have undoubtedly been felt by many of us. Importantly, during this difficult time, the Government has provided, and continues to provide, much-needed support to many Australian individuals, households and businesses. The Government’s recently delivered 2020-21 Federal Budget is no exception and aims to extend upon this support. The Budget priorities, and resulting announced proposed measures, contained in the Government’s ‘COVID-19 Economic Recovery Plan’, focus on rebuilding our economy, creating jobs and securing Australia’s future.
