The Government Budget for the upcoming year is freely available to download in bulk as a collection of PDF files from the SEPG website.

There's no machine readable version either in the SEPG or in the Spanish Open Data Portal.

A good example of what the open data version of the spanish national bugget would be is available to download as CSV on, a social project byt the NGO Fundación Civio.

I have accepted the comment that the data has an open license. I recommend to put the license in a more prominent place on the budget website.
