Release Information

For Israel, central government budget balance, revenue and expenditure.

Data are collected from reports of the Accountant General, and the proposed budget.

Government payments are recorded on a cash basis i.e., on actual payment, except for salaries to permanent employees which are regarded as paid on the last day of each month.

Ordinary receipts are recorded only upon collection.

The classification of receipts and payments used is mainly an administrative one.

Data are disseminated on: total revenue, total expenditure with interest payments shown separately, the deficit/surplus, net allocation of credit (lending minus repayments), and net funding from the public including a breakdown into domestic and foreign financing, with a further breakdown into: (a) gross borrowing, (b) repayments of principal, (c) net sales of financial assets, and (d) changes in cash and bank deposits.

Fundamental data are quarterly, and reported by the Bank of Israel. From 2008 to 2018, the Central Statistics Bureau converted the data to a monthly form.
