However, for certain transactions the fiscal year exceeds the calendar year by four months.
Balance of Payments
The monthly balance of payments data is in line with the 6th edition of the Balance of Payments Manual, which is published under auspices of the International Monetary Fund (BPM6 - Balance of Payments Manual 6th Edition). See source.
Please refer to the summary methodologies located on the International Monetary Fund's website.
The data are provisional when first released and are revised in light of new information. In particular, the data of the last quarter of each year are usually finalized in the middle of the following year and are published in the Annual Budget Report and the State Balance Sheet (for both the data on central government debt and the data on State guarantees). Both reports are released in November and are available - in hard copy format and on CD (in Greek). The full text of the Annual Budget Report (in Greek), as well as a summary (in English) are available on the website of the General Accounting Office (http://mof-glk.gr).
