Deficit for Swedish central government in June 2020

Swedish central government payments resulted in a deficit of SEK 56.5 billion in June. The Debt Office's forecast was a deficit of SEK 70.5 billion. The deviation is largely due to higher tax income than forecasted.

The primary balance was SEK 13.9 billion higher than forecasted. Most of the difference is explained by tax income being approximately SEK 10 billion higher than estimated. Statistics showing the effects of the various tax types are not available at this time. Statistics for May showed, among other things, that the payments of wage taxes and corporate income tax were higher than expected.

The Debt Office’s net lending to government agencies etc. were SEK 0.1 billion lower than calculated.

Interest payments on central government debt were SEK 0.1 billion higher than forecasted.

For the twelve-month period up to the end of June 2020, central government payments resulted in a deficit of SEK 58.0 billion.

Central government debt amounted to SEK 1,158 billion at the end of June.

The outcome for July 2020 will be published on 7 August at 9.30 a.m.
