Riksgälden: Surplus for Swedish central government in January

Swedish central government payments resulted in a surplus of SEK 17 billion in
January. The Debt Office's forecast was a deficit of SEK 6 billion. The
difference is mainly explained by a significant increase in preliminary tax
payments.

Tax income was about SEK 18 billion higher than forecast, primarily due to
increased payments of preliminary taxes concerning 2015. The Debt Office's
assessment is that part of these are non-recurring.

Furthermore, disbursements from central government agencies were about SEK 6
billion lower than calculated.

Interest payments on central government debt were SEK 0.6 billion higher than
forecast.

For the twelve-month period up to the end of January 2016, central government
payments resulted in a deficit of SEK 3.6 billion.

Central government debt amounted to SEK 1,399 billion at the end of January.

The outcome for February will be published on 7 March at 9.30 a.m.
