Each year the Commonwealth Treasurer asks the Commonwealth Grants Commission to update the relativities for distributing revenue from the Goods & Services Tax (GST) to state and territory governments. This ensures the distribution reflects changes in the financial circumstances of states and territories.
The Commission prepares the annual update according to terms of reference issued by the Commonwealth Treasurer. It also consults with state and territory governments on new issues of relevance.
On 6 October 2021 the Commission released a paper on new issues affecting the 2022 Update, including the proposed treatment of Commonwealth payments. Submissions were received in November 2021.
