    Budget Speech 2018

    Making heads and tails of the Budget Speech with Metropolitan

    It’s that time of year again when we South Africans will be glued to our TV’s watching, with baited breath, as the Finance Minister delivers the annual budget speech.

    We’ve endured arguably the longest month of the year, appropriately coined “Janu Worry”, after an expensive festive season. As South Africans gear up for the year ahead, we are again reminded that we are not yet out of the woods.

    It’s that time of year again when we South Africans will be glued to our TV’s watching, with baited breath, as the Finance Minister delivers the annual budget speech.

    This year, as with recent years, the South African budget speech will be delivered amidst several, radical political changes and a volatile economy. No one can predict the outcome of the political landscape or how it will affect the rand, but we do know that money is tight and that we may need to tighten our belts even further to prepare for the transformation that lies ahead.

    Every year the budget speech is delivered with complex jargon and terminology and truthfully very few of us are up to speed on the meaning of these terms never mind the kind of implications this pertinent information has on our lives. We at Metropolitan have created a Budget Speech Cheat Sheet explaining some of the teams you to help you follow the conversation confidently.
