A critique of budget presentation in South Africa

The purpose of this article is twofold: first, to describe and examine several aspects of the presentation of the South African budget, and second, to compare the South African budget with budgets of selected overseas countries (United States, the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia). According to the author, the South African budget is currently presented in a highly misleading and outdated form; consequently it does not give parliament and the public all the information to which they are entitled and which is required to make an intelligent assessment of the government’s fiscal activities. Notes, sum. in French, German, Afrikaans and English.
