What's in the bulletin?

  • The data presented in this bulletin presents the latest fiscal position of the UK public sector as at 31 August 2016 and so includes the two months of post-EU referendum (23 June 2016) data. However, estimates for the latest period always contain a substantial forecast element and so any post-referendum impact may not become clear for some time.
  • Public sector net borrowing (excluding public sector banks) decreased by £4.9 billion to £33.8 billion in the current financial year-to-date (April to August 2016), compared with the same period in 2015.
  • Public sector net borrowing (excluding public sector banks) decreased by £0.9 billion to £10.5 billion in August 2016, compared with August 2015.
