• Introduction of a ‘patent box’ offering tax concessions on income derived from medical and biotech patents
• Tax and investment incentives for the digital economy
• Extension of the low and middle income tax offset
• Child care subsidy increase for families with multiple children
• $17.7 billion over 5 years to reform aged care
• $2.3 billion on mental health infrastructure and programs
• New and extended home ownership programs for first home owners and single parents.
