Budget 2023

With Budget 2023, we’re supporting New Zealanders with the cost of living and making targeted investments to grow the economy and build a better future. 


We’re providing practical cost of living support across some of the core expenses facing New Zealanders – childcare, healthcare, transport and power bills. This package will help to make things a bit easier for families, students and older New Zealanders by reducing or removing some of the costs they currently face. Millions of Kiwis will pay a little less as a result.

We’re continuing to build for the future, making targeted investments where they are needed most. Investing in infrastructure, skills, science and technology supports every area of the economy. It’s how we support people into work, drive higher wages for New Zealanders and build a stronger, inclusive and more resilient economy.
