Balance of International Payments

Open in Excel:

Tables 19 and 20 set out the annual Balance of International Payments (BOP) estimates.  Retrospective estimates of the main balance of payments flows for the current account for the years 2013-2018 are included in Table 19 which are consistent with the Balance of Payments related elements set out in Table 5 and also the results in the Q1 2019 Balance of Payments release, published on a BPM6 (sixth edition of the IMF Balance of Payments Manual) basis in July 2019. 

It is not possible to give comparable estimates for the components of the financial account (i.e. Table 20) for years earlier than 1998 as a new series was introduced in respect of that year onwards incorporating the activities of the International Financial Services Centre (IFSC).
