Balance of Payments is a statistical statement summarizing the economic transactions between the residents of Slovak Republic and the residents of the rest of the world during a reporting period. Balance of Payments is compiled monthly and quarterly in a cumulative form.
Analytical framework: Data are disseminated in millions of euro (EUR) under five main headings for the following balance of payments components:
Transaction coverage: The balance of payments covers in principle all transactions between residents and nonresidents. Custom statistics and Statistical Office´s statistics cover all merchandise crossing the border of the Slovak Republic
Geographical coverage: No geographical regions are excluded from recording.
Conversion to unit of account: Data are reported in domestic currency (EUR) in accordance with Accountancy Act, Measures of Ministry of Finance on Chart of Account and the Accounting Procedures for Banks and Measures of Ministry of Finance on Chart of Account and the Accounting Procedures for Enterprises. Foreign currency denominated transactions are converted to the national currency (EUR) using the monthly average exchange rate.
Valuation: Generally transactions are recorded at market prices.
The quarterly data are not revised. Only the annual balance of payments data are finalized. The final annual data are disseminated 21 months after the end of the reference year, through the Internet on the NBS's website.
