    The real test of the Budget in the all important business community will be known today

    The real test of the Budget in the all important business community will be known today

    Newstalkzb political editor Barry Soper says the Prime Minister will address a business lunch in Auckland, while Grant Robertson will do the same in Wellington.

    This wasn't a business Budget, but during the election campaign last year there was much talk about how the gap between the boardroom and the smoko room had to be closer.

    This was essentially a smoko room Budget, but there's a billion dollars in it for research and development tax credits and that's being welcomed as more than what was expected.

    Whether it's enough the politicians will find out today.
