KPMG Econtech Summary: CGE Analysis: Part of government’s AFTS response 

The Australian Treasury provided part of the government's policy parameters for tax reform to KPMG Econtech who then independently modelled their economic effects. KPMG Econtech was not involved in the policy development, while the modelling was independent of Treasury.

This report is a summary version of the modelling of the economic impacts of the government's response to the Australia's Future Tax System (AFTS Review).

CGE Analysis of the Current Australian Tax System by KPMG Econtech


The AFTS Review Panel commissioned a series of analytical papers to explore significant tax and transfer policy issues.


An analysis of the current Australian tax system was conducted by KPMG Econtech using the MM900 computable general equilibrium (CGE) model of the Australian economy.


The study looked at the efficiency costs of Australia's major federal, state and local government taxes.


The report is available on the AFTS Review website at
