The nominal result of the general government sector is the difference between the revenue and the expenditure of the sector. It equals the general government deficit/surplus defined in the Maastricht Treaty, according to Council Regulation (EC) No 479/2009 of 25 May 2009 on the application of the Protocol on the excessive deficit procedure annexed to the Treaty establishing the European Community, with amendments. The result differs from the net borrowing/lending according to Council Regulation (EC) No 2223/96 of 25 June 1996 on the European system of national and regional accounts in the Community (ESA95), with amendments, for the treatment of interest relating to swaps and forward rate agreements.
To obtain the nominal result there are used mainly administrative data , described in the Annual Program of Statistical Surveys of Official Statistics in the survey 1.65.19 Fiscal notification of the general government sector.
These data are used to work out indicators on deficit/ surplus of the general government and its sub-sectors in the relation to Gross Domestic Product, needs of government bodies, local authorities, other institutions and for the submission of annual reports to the European Commission (Eurostat).
