2021 Update

Terms of Reference

The Commission expects to receive terms of reference to produce relativities for distributing GST revenue in 2021-22. The Commission will produce relativities for 2021-22 in accordance with the Commonwealth’s new equalisation arrangements enacted in the Treasury Laws Amendment (Making Sure Every State and Territory Gets Their Fair Share of GST) Act 2018.


The Commission is consulting with states and territories on new issues affecting the 2021 Update including whether policy responses to the COVID-19 pandemic will have any implications for the methodology for  measuring relative fiscal capacities.
