This table contains cash-based data on a monthly basis about revenue and expenditure and the central government balance sheet. Data are provided by the accounting departments of the relevant public institutions. The figures in this table are presented on a cash basis, which means that the criterion for the booking is the moment the payment is made. The figures presented here do not comply with the publications on National Accounts. With this table, the Netherlands meets the requirements as laid down in the Directive EU 2011/85. This directive is part of the Enhanced Economic Governance package ('Sixpack'), adopted by the European Council in 2011.

Statistics Netherlands published the revised National Accounts in June 2018. Among other things, GDP and total government expenditures have been adjusted upwards as a result of the revision. As part of the revision, the determination of the population of central government has been improved qualitatively. From the first month of 2018 onwards, administrative data of the central government will be published after revision in this table. The figures for the previous months have not been adjusted based on the revision. Between December 2017 and January 2018, a break occurs as a result of the benchmark revision.

Figures available from: January 2014.

Status of the figures: Figures for July and August 2021 are provisional. Figures for January, February, March, April, May and June 2021 are revised provisional and figures for 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 are definite.

Changes as from 30 September 2021: Figures for August 2021 have been added. The figures for April, May and June 2021 have been adjusted. The figures for April, May and June 2021 are revised provisional.

When will new figures be published? New monthly figures will be published one month after the month under review. With the publication of a new month, provisional figures for the previous month can be adjusted. The figures referring to the three months of a quarter will be revised at the end of the next quarter. Six months after the end of the year, figures will be set to 'definite'.
