Financial Accounts Statistics
Financial Account Statistics (FAS) are an integral part of the national accounts recording the internal and external financial linkages in the economy broken down by institutional sectors and instruments. They provide stock, and flow information on the financial investment and financing activities for the all sectors of national economy (households, non-financial corporate enterprises, financial institutions, public authorities) broken down by financial instruments (such as deposits, loans, debt securities and equity). They illustrate how the different economic sectors invest their financial surplus and/or finance their financial losses.
The methodology set to compile the financial accounts for the European Union members are set by Eurostat on the “European System of National Accounts 2010 (ESA 2010)”. This internationally compatible accounting framework is in line with common international concepts and rules laid down by the “United Nation’s System of National Accounts 2008 (SNA 2008)”, and is in line with the “International Monetary Fund’s 6th edition of the Balance of Payments and International Investment Position Manual (BPM6)”.
The Central Bank of the Republic of Kosovo (CBK) is publishing for the first time some key tables, as experimental financial account statistics for the financial stocks only for the financial subsectors, broken down by financial instruments, both on the asset and on the liability side, on a “from-whom-to-whom” basis. The methodology used to compile these data is in line with ESA 2010 and SNA 2008.
The release of these experimental statistics is done with the aim to give users early sight of developments and opportunity to give feedback. As the first set of experimental statistics linked to FAS, the FAS for the financial sub-sector statistics are an important marker of progress. Release of a full set of experimental flow of funds statistics for all sectors of the Kosovo economy is planned not before 2022.
