Deficit for Swedish central government in June

6 July 2012 - Press release

Swedish central government payments resulted in a deficit of SEK 28.1 billion. The fact that the central government budget shows deficits in June each year is due to large tax refunds. The number of persons who get their refunds before midsummer increases each year.

The deficit was SEK 2 billion lower than the Debt Office's latest forecast. This is mainly due to tax income being slightly higher than expected

For the twelve-month period up to the end of June 2012, central government payments resulted in a deficit of SEK 26.8 billion.

Central government debt amounted to SEK 1,089 billion at the end of June.

The outcome for July will be published on 7 August, at 9:30 am.
