The monthly bulletin for Central Government Finances reports the realisation of the state budget, and the state income, expenses, assets, liabilities and cash flow. It contains the balance calculation, the government revenue and expenditure statement, the state’s balance sheet and the funds statement for central government finances, among other things.
The monthly bulletin for Central Government Finances is based on the accounting data of the accounting units (on-budget finances) and the state’s extra-budgetary funds (off-budget finances). The State Treasury combines this accounting information in a monthly bulletin, which is published every month on the State Treasury’s website.
The State Treasury sends information gained based on these monthly bulletins to Statistics Finland and the Ministry of Finance, among others.
Monthly bulletins for Central Government Finances and their publishing schedule
The monthly bulletin for Central Government Finances is always published in the middle of the following month. At the end and beginning of the year (December–February), exceptional release dates apply due to the time needed to prepare the final central government accounts and the accounting units’ final accounts. In those months, the data needed to draw up the statement is available later than during other months.
