New press release > Deficit for Swedish central government in June


      

Swedish central government payments resulted in a deficit of SEK 17.3 billion in June. The Debt Office's forecast was a deficit of SEK 18.9 billion. The difference was mainly due to lower net lending to government agencies.

The central government's primary balance was SEK 0.7 billion lower than forecast. This was mainly due to tax income being approximately SEK 1 billion lower than estimated.

The Debt Office's net lending to government agencies etc. was SEK 2.2 billion lower than calculated. This is mainly explained by higher deposits from among others the Nuclear Waste Fund. press release

Interest payments on central government debt amounted to SEK 3.2 billion which was SEK 0.1 billion lower than forecast.

For the twelve-month period up to the end of June 2018, central government payments resulted in a surplus of SEK 83.8 billion.

Central government debt amounted to SEK 1,231 billion at the end of June.

The outcome for July will be published on 7 August at 9.30 a.m.
