Budget Paper No. 2 - Budget Measures 2001-02 ensures that the Budget Papers provide comprehensive information on all Government decisions announced in the Budget that involve changes to its revenue, expense and investing activities.
Budget Paper No. 2 comprises three parts:
Revenue measures are defined as those measures that affect taxation or non-taxation revenues (on a Government Finance Statistics (GFS) basis).
Expense measures are defined as those measures that affect expenses (on a GFS basis).
Capital measures are defined as those measures that affect net capital investment, defined as the change in non-financial assets. Capital measures that fall outside of this definition, such as equity injections or loans used for purposes other than investment in non-financial assets, are shown as having a zero impact on the fiscal balance.
A summary of all measures introduced since the 2000-01 Budget is included in each part. Measures introduced since the 2000-01 Mid-Year Economic and Fiscal Outlook (MYEFO), including measures in this Budget, are described in detail. Detailed descriptions of measures up to the time of the MYEFO are contained in that document.
