Australia Post is a self-funded government business enterprise, with the Australian Government as its sole shareholder. It does not receive taxpayer funds and, in fact, has paid dividends to the Australian Government of more than $2.5 billion over the past 10 years.
As required under the Australian Postal Corporation Act 1989 we continue to balance our commercial objectives with the need to deliver our community service obligations.
Any profit we earn, where appropriate, is used to pay a dividend to our shareholder and reinvested in our assets and services so that we are equipped to meet the changing needs of our
customers and the community.
