Surplus for Swedish central government in November

7 December 2012 - Press release

Swedish central government payments resulted in a surplus of SEK 8.2 billion in November. This was SEK 3.7 billion lower than the Debt Office’s latest forecast, which was a surplus of SEK 11.8 billion.

Disbursements from government authorities were SEK 1 billion higher than forecasted. This is due to a capital contribution to the state-owned company Ersättningsmark i Sverige AB in November. In our latest forecast we assumed that the capital contribution would take place in December. The Debt Office's net lending to authorities was almost SEK 2 billion higher than estimated, which is mainly explained by lower deposits from a number of authorities. Tax income in November developed in line with forecast.

Interest payments on central government debt amounted to SEK 0.4 billion which was SEK 0.8 billion higher than calculated.

For the twelve-month period up to the end of November 2012, central government payments resulted in a deficit of SEK 36.4 billion.

Central government debt amounted to SEK 1,067 billion at the end of November.

The outcome for December will be published on 9 January 2013, at 9:30 am.
