Austrian Draft Budgetary Plan
According to Article 4(2) regulation (EU) 473/2013 the DBPs are to be compiled until October 15th each year. The DBPs are supposed to contain the draft budget for the subsequent year for the Federal Government and the main parameters for the other sectors of the state. They have to be published and forwarded to the European Commission and the Eurogroup.
Due to the general elections on September 29th, 2019 and the forthcoming appointment of a future Federal Government, the present draft budget was prepared by the Federal Ministry of Finance (BMF) on the basis of the assumption of an unchanged policy ("no-policy change"). This is intended to facilitate the coordination of economic and monetary policy in the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU). The future Federal Government will present a new, amended draft budget (together with the update of the Austrian Stability Programme) by April 2020 at the latest.
