The balance of payments statistics show the value of the economic transactions between Dutch residents and nonresidents.
The presentation of the balance of payments is in line with the international guidelines contained in the sixth edition of the IMF Balance of Payments Manual (BPM6).
Net transactions within the financial account are calculated as the difference between transactions in assets and liabilities. Errors and omissions are calculated as the difference between net lending/net borrowing from the financial account and net lending/net borrowing from the current and capital account.
Data are revised quarterly, as necessary. Final data appear two years and three months after the reporting period.
Rounding may result in slight difference between reported totals and calculated sums.
Throughout the dataset, an increase in financial assets and liabilities is shown with a positive sign; a decrease is shown with a negative sign. This sign convention is applicable as from the introduction of BPM6 and implies a change compared with BPM5 for the registration of transactions in financial assets. The sign convention in the current and capital account did not change.
