Swedish budget deficit decreased in 2015
Swedish central government payments resulted in a deficit of SEK 32.7 billion in 2015.  The Debt Office's forecast from October was a deficit of SEK 45 billion. The difference is mainly explained by higher tax income.
The deficit - the net borrowing requirement - of SEK 32.7 billion can be compared with a deficit of SEK 72.2 billion in 2014. The improvement between years is mainly explained by increased tax income due to a stronger development in the economy.
Central government debt amounted to SEK 1 403 billion at the end of December which was SEK 9 billion higher than in December 2014.
Deficit in December
Central government payments resulted in a deficit of SEK 98.5 billion in December. The Debt Office's forecast was a deficit of SEK 99.0 billion.
Payments to local governments were higher than expected as the Swedish parliament has approved an additional central government grant of SEK 10 billion. This was partially offset by tax income being SEK 5 billion higher than forecast.
The Debt Office's net lending to government agencies was SEK 3.9 billion lower than forecast. The deviation is mainly due to higher deposits from the Swedish Pensions Agency and the Swedish Export Credits Guarantee Board.
Interest payments on central government debt were SEK 1.2 billion lower than forecast due to slightly higher premiums on bond issues and foreign exchange gains.
The outcome for January will be published on 5 February, at. 09:30 a.m.
