In February each year, the Minister of Finance announces government's spending, tax and borrowing plans for the year ahead. This is called the national budget speech. In the speech, the Minister provides information on how government will raise money and how it will be spent. The national budget divides money between national departments, provinces and municipalities.
Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan will present the National Budget to Parliament on 24 February 2016. Tune into your favourite television or radio station to hear how government plans to allocate money to improve our lives.
