Release Information

The Bank of France reports monthly data on the country's balance of payments. The data set includes the current account, capital account, and financial account. Figures are in millions of Euros (Mil. EUR) and are not seasonally adjusted (NSA). 

The balance of payments is a statistical document, presented under the rules of double entry bookkeeping, which collects and orders all transactions economics and financial economics one - one country or economic zone - with the rest of the world during a given period. Despite its name, the balance of payments no longer attempt to report the payments, but transactions between residents and nonresidents. It is a balanced account, each transaction with a non-resident with financial compensation, a change of assets or liabilities vis-a-vis non-residents. In the simplest case, an export or transfer of tigers by giving residents naussance in return has increased their liquid assets (eg, residents' deposits with nonresident banks) or disengagements (eg reimbursement Advance previously obtained from non-resident banks).

Data is subject to revisions.
