Commonwealth Grants Commission

The Commonwealth Grants Commission recommends how the revenues raised from the Goods and Services Tax (GST) should be distributed to the States and Territories to achieve horizontal fiscal equalisation (HFE).

It is an independent statutory body which responds to requests sent to it by the Commonwealth Treasurer. It makes its recommendations in consultation with the States and Territories and based on data provided by them and independent statistical sources.
