Surplus for Swedish central government in April

8 May 2012 - Press release

Swedish central government payments resulted in a surplus of SEK 24.3 billion in April. This is SEK 5.8 billion higher than The Debt Office´s latest forecast. The difference is mainly explained by dividend income received earlier than anticipated.

Most of the forecast deviation in April is explained by the fact that dividends from LKAB amounting to SEK 5 billion were paid out in the end of April. We expected to receive the dividends in May in our latest forecast.   

Interest payments on central government debt developed in line with our forecast.

For the twelve-month period up to the end of April 2012, central government payments resulted in a deficit of SEK 13.3 billion.

Central government debt amounted to SEK 1 078 billion at the end of April.

The outcome for May will be published on 8 June, at 9:30 am.
