Finance Standing Committee

The Minister of Finance, Mr Enoch Godongwana, will deliver his inaugural National Budget Speech on 23 February 2022.

The budget is the most important economic instrument of government, as it reflects the country's socio-economic policy priorities by translating priorities and political commitments into expenditures. 

Minister Godongwana invites South Africans to share their suggestions on the Budget – what should government be spending on, how to address a large budget deficit, new sources of tax revenues, and other Budget-relevant information.

BRRR: Budgetary Review and Recommendations Report

The MTBPS makes it possible for Parliament and the public to interact with government's budget plans several months ahead of the main budget. 

Following their tabling in the National Assembly, the BRRRs are submitted to the Minister of Finance and relevant Minister responsible for the portfolio/department. Upon delivery of the main Budget, the Minister of Finance will explain how the budget gives effect to these recommendations from Parliament, or why they have not been taken into account.
