Austrian Draft Budgetary Plan

In accordance with Article 4(2) of Regulation (EU) 473/2013, “draft budgetary plans” must be prepared each year by October 15th. These documents should contain the Central Government`s draft budget for the coming year as well as the main parameters of the draft budgets for all the other subsectors of the General Government. They must  be made public and, according to Article 6 of the said Regulation, be submitted to the European Commission and the Eurogroup.

Due to national elections on October 15th, 2017, the Draft Budgetary Plan (DBP) 2018 was compiled under the “no-policy-change” assumption on October 16th, 2017 by the Federal Ministry of Finance. This was supposed to contribute to the coordination within the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU).

This document presents the Federal Governments’ updated DBP for 2018, together with the Austrian Stability Programme (update for 2017 to 2022).
