The economic data calendar is in the making.
A new version will be released every two years, with the latest edition set for release on February 10, 2019.
But as the calendar has become more comprehensive, the Government has begun to take more time to finalise the economic data that will be included.
In the past, economic data was released at the beginning of the month and was then put into a separate box, but the new calendar, announced on Monday, will be a separate, standalone document that will contain more detailed information on a given month.
“We have been working on a number of things, and some of them are the economic calendar,” Finance Minister Mathias Cormann said on Tuesday.
“I think what we’ve done is create a more detailed economic calendar that includes the month-to-month changes that we’ve had, the changes that are happening over time.”
He said the new economic calendar will also include a range of information on the government’s tax policies.
A number of key tax policy areas are covered in the new format.
One of the main issues raised by tax reform supporters is that the data on how much the Government is paying in income tax is not complete.
In an effort to provide a more complete picture of the Government’s tax policy, the data will also be made public by way of a series of graphs.
Cormann said that while it was not possible to produce a perfect financial calendar, it was possible to provide “a very complete picture”.
“In the longer term, we are trying to do this in a way that we can get as much of that as possible,” he said.
The Government has also promised to provide more detailed income tax statistics over time.
And the Budget will have a new section on the economic census, which will be able to show a breakdown of tax expenditure on the public purse and also provide a range, for example, of what types of products people buy.
But the most important aspect of the economic diary will be the annual report.
While the economic cycle will be covered by the same calendar, the next one will not be released until 2019.
As the calendar will be an annual document, the timing will be dependent on the Government being able to meet its targets for the year.
Under current legislation, the economic report is released every four years, and the last one was released in 2019.
