Riksgälden: Surplus for Swedish central government in May

Swedish central government payments resulted in a surplus of SEK 36.0 billion
in May. This is SEK 2.3 billion higher than the Debt Office's forecast.
Higher than expected tax income outweighed higher interest payments on
central government debt and larger net lending to government agencies.

Tax income was about SEK 5 billion higher than forecast. The deviation is due
to larger supplementary tax payments.

The Debt Office's net lending to government agencies was SEK 2.0 billion
higher than forecast, mainly due to lower deposits from the Export Credits
Guarantee Board.

Interest payments on central government debt were SEK 1.7 billion higher than
forecast. This is explained by higher interest payments in foreign currencies
and shifts of interest payments between months in SEK.

For the twelve-month period up to the end of May 2016, central government
payments resulted in a surplus of SEK 38.6 billion.

Central government debt amounted to SEK 1,317 billion at the end of May.

The outcome for June will be published on 7 July at 9.30 a.m. On 15 June the
Debt Office will publish a new forecast for the central government net
borrowing requirement and borrowing.
