Dataset:Public sector finances tables 1 to 10: Appendix A
2 October 2018
An error has been identified in the recording of public sector equity liabilities, reported in tables PSNFL1 to PSNFL3 as components of public sector net financial liabilities excluding public sector banks (PSNFL ex). This error affects data for the first and second quarters of 2018 (January to March and April to June), which means data for the financial year ending March 2018 (April 2017 to March 2018) are also impacted. The correction of the equities data has caused the total for PSNFL ex to revise downwards from £1,453.4 billion, as reported on 21 September 2018, to £1,437.5 billion for the financial year ending March 2018. Data for earlier quarters are not impacted. The error correction not only impacts PSNFL ex and the component equity liabilities but also impacts a number of other data series reported in the PSNFL tables (ONS identifiers CPNO, CPNG, CPNF, CPNE, CPPK and CPND). The error correction has no impact on other tables or text within the public sector finances release of 21 September 2018.
