The National Treasury is one of the departments of the South African government. The Treasury manages national economic policy, prepares the South African government's annual budget and manages the government's finances. Along with the South African Revenue Service and Statistics South Africa, the Treasury falls within the portfolio of the Minister of Finance. Pravin Gordhan is the current Minister of Finance, having succeeded Trevor Manuel in Jacob Zuma's first cabinet, with Manuel become the first head of a newly created National Planning Commission.

In the 2010 national budget, the Treasury received an appropriation of 1,504.4 million rand (excluding transfers and pension payments which are accounted for as part of the Treasury vote) and had 730 employees.[1]
