Release Information

The dataset includes information about:

  • Revenue, broken down by current and capital account, and by economic type (direct and indirect taxes, social contributions, etc.).
  • Expenditure, broken down by current and capital account and by economic type (salaries; social transfers and interest payments).
  • Balance (deficit/surplus) as the difference between revenue and expenditure.

Revenue and expenditure are national accounts based and are consistent with ESA 95. They are compiled by the National Institute of Statistics, based on Treasury information.

The data are recorded on a cash basis. The fiscal year is the same as the calendar year.

The data are semi-final when first released. Revisions are not usually relevant, unless unforeseen events occur.
