Report on State Finances

The Report on State Finances 2020-21 incorporates both the Outcomes Report prepared on a Uniform Presentation Framework (UPF) basis and the AASB1049 Financial Statements prepared in accordance with Australian Accounting Standards, providing a comprehensive view of the financial operations and position of the Queensland Government.

Queensland’s economic recovery from the impacts of COVID-19 is well underway. The Queensland Government’s success in managing the on-going risks of COVID-19 within the State, together with its immediate support and longer-term Economic Recovery Plan measures have contributed to an improved fiscal position in 2020-21.
