Treasury provides sound economic analysis and authoritative policy advice on issues such as: the economy, budget, taxation, financial sector, foreign investment, structural policy, superannuation, small business, housing affordability and international economic policy.

Treasury also works with state and territory governments on key policy areas, as well as managing federal financial relations.
